I am using Python to scrape data from the web. I want to use that data to run calculations in Julia. Is it possible to call the function in Julia and return its result, or am I better off just exporting to a csv and loading the data in that way?
Absolutely. See PyCall.jl.
julia> using PyCall julia> @pyimport bs4 julia> @pyimport requests julia> r = requests.get("https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46638265"); julia> soup = bs4.BeautifulSoup(r[:content]); julia> soup[:title][:string] "Is it possible to call a python function from Julia and return its result - Stack Overflow"
