Datapad is a library of lazy data transformations for sequences; similar to spark and linq

Project description

Datapad: A Fluent API for Exploratory Data Analysis

Datapad is a Python library for processing sequence and stream data using a Fluent style API. Data scientists and researchers use it as a lightweight toolset to efficiently explore datasets and to massage data for modeling tasks.

It can be viewed as a combination of syntatic sugar for the Python itertools module and supercharged tooling for working with Structured Sequence data.

Exploratory data analysis with Datapad

See what you can do with datapad in the examples below.

Count all unique items in a sequence:

>>> import datapad as dp
>>> data = ['a', 'b', 'b', 'c', 'c', 'c']
>>> seq = dp.Sequence(data)
>>> seq.count(distinct=True) \
...    .collect()
[('a', 1),
 ('b', 2),
 ('c', 3)]

Transform individual fields in a sequence:

>>> import datapad as dp
>>> import datapad.fields as F
>>> data = [
...     {'a': 1, 'b': 2},
...     {'a': 4, 'b': 4},
...     {'a': 5, 'b': 7}
... ]
>>> seq = dp.Sequence(data)
>>>'a', lambda x: x*2)) \
...    .map(F.apply('b', lambda x: x*3)) \
...    .collect()
[{'a': 2, 'b': 6},
 {'a': 8, 'b': 12},
 {'a': 10, 'b': 21}]

Chain together multiple transforms for the elements of a sequence:

>>> import datapad as dp
>>> data = ['a', 'b', 'b', 'c', 'c', 'c']
>>> seq = dp.Sequence(data)
>>> seq.distinct() \
...    .map(lambda x: x+'z') \
...    .map(lambda x: (x, len(x))) \
...    .collect()
[('az', 2),
 ('bz', 2),
 ('cz', 2)]
