sequence.outer_join(other_sequence, predicate_function) → stream array.outer_join(other_sequence, predicate_function) → array
Returns a left outer join of two sequences. The returned sequence represents a union of the left-hand sequence and the right-hand sequence: all documents in the left-hand sequence will be returned, each matched with a document in the right-hand sequence if one satisfies the predicate condition. In most cases, you will want to follow the join with zip to combine the left and right results.
Example: Return a list of all Marvel heroes, paired with any DC heroes who could beat them in a fight.
r.table('marvel').outer_join(r.table('dc'), lambda marvel_row, dc_row: marvel_row['strength'] < dc_row['strength'] ).zip().run(conn)
(Compare this to an inner_join with the same inputs and predicate, which would return a list only of the matchups in which the DC hero has the higher strength.)
