Find overlaping sequences with pyranges from overlap

I am trying to replicate the mergeByOverlap function from R BioConductor in python using the pyranges package. In R the code would be:

gr.snp <- with(gr.snp, GRanges(chr, IRanges(start, end),rsid=gr.snp$rsid))
snp.annotated <- data.frame(mergeByOverlaps(gr.snp, gencode, maxgap=2000, type="start"))

which returns:

[1] 34

[1] "gr.snp.seqnames"                  "gr.snp.start"

[33] "gencode.ont"                      "gencode.protein_id"

Where gr.snp is my snp file that I want the annotations for and gencode is the annotation file.

The closest I’ve gotten with python is with cluster or merge but they arent exactly right:

>>> temp = gr_snp.cluster(genecode_genes, slack = 2000)
>>> len(temp)
>>> temp.columns
Index(['Chromosome', 'Start', 'End', 'rsid', 'Strand', 'Cluster'], dtype="object")

Merge does basically the same thing but preserves even less metadata. I need the metadata from both tables to be preserved. Does anyone know how to do this?
