Style Pandas Dataframe Like a Master


In addition, the cmap argument allows us to choose a color palette for the gradient. The matplotlib documentation lists all the available options (seaborn has some options as well).

r/datascience - Dataframe library for python, pandas alternative


Do you have benchmarks showing speed improvements over pandas? Pandas can be dreadfully slow, and a restricted implementation that uses only a subset of the "most useful" pandas features might be significantly faster. For instance, consider this benchmark for row and column access to a pandas DataFrame vs a dict of ndarrays columns. For row access, the fastest pandas way to iterate through rows (iterrows) is x6 slower than the simple dict implementation: 24ms vs 4ms. Furthermore, pandas DataFrame a column-based data structure is a whopping 36x slower than a dict of ndarrays for access to a single column of data.

Efficiently Store Pandas DataFrames


Good options exist for numeric data but text is a pain. Categorical dtypes are a good option. I need to read and write Pandas DataFrames to disk. Typically we use libraries like pickle to serialize Python objects. For dask.frame we really care about doing this quickly so we're going to also look at a few alternatives.

We can answer questions like "Which employer's employees donated the most?" Or "what is the average amount donated per occupation?" Since Dask is lazy, we haven't actually computed anything.
