Dataframe

Build
Status

DataFrame is a library that implements an API similar to Python's Pandas or R's data.frame().

Installation

Add dataframe to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

def deps do
  [{:dataframe, "~> 0.1.0"}]
end

Usage

Tutorials

  • [Lesson 1](tutorial/lesson1.md)

Creation

data = DataFrame.new(DataFrame.Table.build_random(6,4), [1,3,4,5], DataFrame.DateRange.new("2016-09-12", 6))

Sorting index (defaults bigger to smaller)

DataFrame.sort_index(data)

Selecting

By name:

DataFrame.loc(data, DataFrame.DateRange.new("2016-09-15", 2), [3,4])
              3             4
2016-09-15    0.5417848216  0.5546980818
2016-09-16    0.6621771048  0.5763923325

A specific data by name:

DataFrame.at(data, "2016-09-15", 4)
0.5546980818725673

By position:

DataFrame.iloc(data, 4..6, 2..4)
              4             5
2016-09-16    0.6984988237  0.9858222366
2016-09-17    0.4256911712  0.1085587668
DataFrame.iat(data, 0, 0)
0.31553155828919915

The library is in very early stages of development. No effort has been made to optimize its performance. Expect it to be slow.

Plotting

If you have Python and Matplotlib you can plot the data in your Dataframe. Check out the Explot package for installation details.

Let's plot the cummulative sum of the values:

 data |> DataFrame.cumsum |> DataFrame.plot

Will give us this graph: [](readme_example.png)

Development

mix test

TODO

  • Deal with exceptions (negative numbers as input, etc.)
  • Setting of subtable data
  • Types of columns (no stat data on text, etc)
