eval-able string representation of pandas objects

Project description


pdrepr takes a pandas DataFrame as input, and attempts to output a string that, when passed to Python's built-in eval(), will reproduce the original DataFrame. Supports multiindices for rows and columns, at least for the relatively simple cases I have tested. DataFrames with datatypes other than strings, ints and floats should work if their _repr__() method also returns a string that can be passed to eval(), resulting in a similar object.

Testing and linting codecov GitHub release (latest by date including pre-releases) PyPI


I was tired of having to manually construct DataFrames to be used in testing, especially the reference object to be compared with the resulting DF. With this package, such a code snipped can be created from the resulting DF.
