klib is a Python library for importing, cleaning, analyzing and preprocessing data. Explanations on key functionalities can be found on Medium / TowardsDataScience in the examples section or on YouTube (Data Professor).


Use the package manager pip to install klib.

PyPI Version Downloads

pip install -U klib

Alternatively, to install this package with conda run:

Conda Version Conda Downloads

conda install -c conda-forge klib


import klib
import pandas as pd

df = pd.DataFrame(data)

# klib.describe - functions for visualizing datasets
- klib.cat_plot(df) # returns a visualization of the number and frequency of categorical features
- klib.corr_mat(df) # returns a color-encoded correlation matrix
- klib.corr_plot(df) # returns a color-encoded heatmap, ideal for correlations
- klib.dist_plot(df) # returns a distribution plot for every numeric feature
- klib.missingval_plot(df) # returns a figure containing information about missing values

# klib.clean - functions for cleaning datasets
- klib.data_cleaning(df) # performs datacleaning (drop duplicates & empty rows/cols, adjust dtypes,...)
- klib.clean_column_names(df) # cleans and standardizes column names, also called inside data_cleaning()
- klib.convert_datatypes(df) # converts existing to more efficient dtypes, also called inside data_cleaning()
- klib.drop_missing(df) # drops missing values, also called in data_cleaning()
- klib.mv_col_handling(df) # drops features with high ratio of missing vals based on informational content
- klib.pool_duplicate_subsets(df) # pools subset of cols based on duplicates with min. loss of information

# klib.preprocess - functions for data preprocessing (feature selection, scaling, ...)
- klib.train_dev_test_split(df) # splits a dataset and a label into train, optionally dev and test sets
- klib.feature_selection_pipe() # provides common operations for feature selection
- klib.num_pipe() # provides common operations for preprocessing of numerical data
- klib.cat_pipe() # provides common operations for preprocessing of categorical data
- klib.preprocess.ColumnSelector() # selects num or cat columns, ideal for a Feature Union or Pipeline
- klib.preprocess.PipeInfo() # prints out the shape of the data at the specified step of a Pipeline


Find all available examples as well as applications of the functions in klib.clean() with detailed descriptions here.

klib.missingval_plot(df) # default representation of missing values in a DataFrame, plenty of settings are available

Missingvalue Plot Example

klib.corr_plot(df, split='pos') # displaying only positive correlations, other settings include threshold, cmap...
klib.corr_plot(df, split='neg') # displaying only negative correlations

Corr Plot Example

klib.corr_plot(df, target='wine') # default representation of correlations with the feature column

Target Corr Plot Example

klib.dist_plot(df) # default representation of a distribution plot, other settings include fill_range, histogram, ...

Dist Plot Example

klib.cat_plot(data, top=4, bottom=4) # representation of the 4 most & least common values in each categorical column

Cat Plot Example
