Kmodes is for categorical Data. But sometimes I read it somewhere that it is applicable on Mixed Data i.e., Numeric and categorical.

So whats right?

As far as I remember Kmodes is used for Categorical data, even in the documentation I couldn't find anything related to Mixed Data Type, if you have some reference do share.

I've used Kproto for Mixed Data types as you have mentioned and the package is ClustMixType, it combination of Kmeans and Kmodes.

Do have a look and let me know if have any questions.
