README

Dataframes are used for statistics and data manipulation/exploration. You can think of a Dataframe as an excel spreadsheet. This package is designed to be light-weight and intuitive.

The package is production ready but the API is not stable yet. Once stability is reached, version 1.0.0 will be tagged. It is recommended your package manager locks to a commit id instead of the master branch directly.

DataFrames

Creating a DataFrame


s1 := dataframe.NewSeriesInt64("day", nil, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
s2 := dataframe.NewSeriesFloat64("sales", nil, 50.3, 23.4, 56.2, nil, nil, 84.2, 72, 89)
df := dataframe.NewDataFrame(s1, s2)

fmt.Print(df.Table())

OUTPUT:
+-----+-------+---------+
|     |  DAY  |  SALES  |
+-----+-------+---------+
| 0:  |   1   |  50.3   |
| 1:  |   2   |  23.4   |
| 2:  |   3   |  56.2   |
| 3:  |   4   |   NaN   |
| 4:  |   5   |   NaN   |
| 5:  |   6   |  84.2   |
| 6:  |   7   |   72    |
| 7:  |   8   |   89    |
+-----+-------+---------+
| 8X2 | INT64 | FLOAT64 |
+-----+-------+---------+

Insert and Remove Row


df.Append(nil, 9, 123.6)

df.Append(nil, map[string]interface{}{
    "day":   10,
    "sales": nil,
})

df.Remove(0)

OUTPUT:
+-----+-------+---------+
|     |  DAY  |  SALES  |
+-----+-------+---------+
| 0:  |   2   |  23.4   |
| 1:  |   3   |  56.2   |
| 2:  |   4   |   NaN   |
| 3:  |   5   |   NaN   |
| 4:  |   6   |  84.2   |
| 5:  |   7   |   72    |
| 6:  |   8   |   89    |
| 7:  |   9   |  123.6  |
| 8:  |  10   |   NaN   |
+-----+-------+---------+
| 9X2 | INT64 | FLOAT64 |
+-----+-------+---------+

Update Row


df.UpdateRow(0, nil, map[string]interface{}{
    "day":   3,
    "sales": 45,
})

Sorting


sks := []dataframe.SortKey{
    {Key: "sales", Desc: true},
    {Key: "day", Desc: true},
}

df.Sort(ctx, sks)

OUTPUT:
+-----+-------+---------+
|     |  DAY  |  SALES  |
+-----+-------+---------+
| 0:  |   9   |  123.6  |
| 1:  |   8   |   89    |
| 2:  |   6   |  84.2   |
| 3:  |   7   |   72    |
| 4:  |   3   |  56.2   |
| 5:  |   2   |  23.4   |
| 6:  |  10   |   NaN   |
| 7:  |   5   |   NaN   |
| 8:  |   4   |   NaN   |
+-----+-------+---------+
| 9X2 | INT64 | FLOAT64 |
+-----+-------+---------+

Iterating

You can change the step and starting row. It may be wise to lock the DataFrame before iterating.

The returned values are a map containing the name of the series (string) and the order of the series (int).


iterator := df.ValuesIterator(dataframe.ValuesOptions{0, 1, true}) // Don't apply read lock because we are write locking from outside.

df.Lock()
for {
    row, vals, _ := iterator()
    if row == nil {
        break
    }
    fmt.Println(*row, vals)
}
df.Unlock()

OUTPUT:
0 map[day:1 0:1 sales:50.3 1:50.3]
1 map[sales:23.4 1:23.4 day:2 0:2]
2 map[day:3 0:3 sales:56.2 1:56.2]
3 map[1:<nil> day:4 0:4 sales:<nil>]
4 map[day:5 0:5 sales:<nil> 1:<nil>]
5 map[sales:84.2 1:84.2 day:6 0:6]
6 map[day:7 0:7 sales:72 1:72]
7 map[day:8 0:8 sales:89 1:89]

Statistics

You can easily calculate statistics for a Series using the gonum or montanaflynn/stats package.

Example

Generally, statistics packages require SeriesFloat64 to operate. Some series provide easy conversion using the ToSeriesFloat64 method.

import "gonum.org/v1/gonum/stat"

s := dataframe.NewSeriesInt64("random", nil, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
sf, _ := s.ToSeriesFloat64(ctx)

Mean

mean := stat.Mean(sf.Values, nil)

Median

import "github.com/montanaflynn/stats"
median, _ := stats.Median(sf.Values)

Standard Deviation

std := stat.StdDev(sf.Values, nil)

Plotting (only Windows, macOS and Linux)

import (
    chart "github.com/wcharczuk/go-chart"
    "github.com/rocketlaunchr/dataframe-go/plot"
    wc "github.com/rocketlaunchr/dataframe-go/plot/wcharczuk/go-chart"
)

sales := dataframe.NewSeriesFloat64("sales", nil, 50.3, nil, 23.4, 56.2, 89, 32, 84.2, 72, 89)
cs, _ := wc.S(ctx, sales, nil, nil)

graph := chart.Chart{Series: []chart.Series{cs}}

plt, _ := plot.Open("Monthly sales", 450, 300)
graph.Render(chart.SVG, plt)
plt.Display(plot.None)
<-plt.Closed

Output:

Math Functions

import "github.com/rocketlaunchr/dataframe-go/math/funcs"

res := 24
sx := dataframe.NewSeriesFloat64("x", nil, dataframe.Float64Range(1, float64(res), 1))
sy := dataframe.NewSeriesFloat64("y", &dataframe.SeriesInit{Size: res})
df := dataframe.NewDataFrame(sx, sy)

fn := funcs.RegularFunc("sin((2*𝜋*x)/24)")
funcs.PiecewiseFunc(ctx, df, fn, 1)

Output:

Importing Data

The imports sub-package has support for importing csv, jsonl and directly from a SQL database. The DictateDataType option can be set to specify the true underlying data type. Alternatively, InferDataTypes option can be set.

CSV

csvStr := `
Country,Date,Age,Amount,Id
"United States",2012-02-01,50,112.1,01234
"United States",2012-02-01,32,321.31,54320

Spain,2012-02-01,66,555.42,00241
`
df, err := imports.LoadFromCSV(ctx, strings.NewReader(csvStr))

OUTPUT:

+-----+----------------+------------+-------+---------+-------+

| 8X5 |     STRING     |    TIME    | INT64 | FLOAT64 | INT64 |
+-----+----------------+------------+-------+---------+-------+

Exporting Data

The exports sub-package has support for exporting to csv, jsonl, parquet, Excel and directly to a SQL database.

Optimizations

  • If you know the number of rows in advance, you can set the capacity of the underlying slice of a series using SeriesInit{}. This will preallocate memory and provide speed improvements.

Generic Series

Out of the box, there is support for string, time.Time, float64 and int64. Automatic support exists for float32 and all types of integers. There is a convenience function provided for dealing with bool. There is also support for complex128 inside the xseries subpackage.

There may be times that you want to use your own custom data types. You can either implement your own Series type (more performant) or use the Generic Series (more convenient).

civil.Date


import (
  "time"
  "cloud.google.com/go/civil"
)

sg := dataframe.NewSeriesGeneric("date", civil.Date{}, nil, civil.Date{2018, time.May, 01}, civil.Date{2018, time.May, 02}, civil.Date{2018, time.May, 03})
s2 := dataframe.NewSeriesFloat64("sales", nil, 50.3, 23.4, 56.2)

df := dataframe.NewDataFrame(sg, s2)

OUTPUT:
+-----+------------+---------+
|     |    DATE    |  SALES  |
+-----+------------+---------+
| 0:  | 2018-05-01 |  50.3   |
| 1:  | 2018-05-02 |  23.4   |
| 2:  | 2018-05-03 |  56.2   |
+-----+------------+---------+

Example

Create some fake data

Let's create a list of 8 "fake" employees with a name, title and base hourly wage rate.

import "golang.org/x/exp/rand"
import "rocketlaunchr/dataframe-go/utils/faker"

ctx := context.Background()
src := rand.NewSource(uint64(time.Now().UTC().UnixNano()))
df := faker.NewDataFrame(8, src, faker.S("name", 0, "Name"), faker.S("title", 0.5, "JobTitle"), faker.S("base rate", 0, "Number", 15, 50))
+-----+----------------+----------------+-----------+

Apply Function

Let's give a promotion to everyone by doubling their salary.

s := df.Series[2]

applyFn := dataframe.ApplySeriesFn(func(val interface{}, row, nRows int) interface{} {
    return 2 * val.(int64)
})

dataframe.Apply(ctx, s, applyFn, dataframe.FilterOptions{InPlace: true})
+-----+----------------+----------------+-----------+

Create a Time series

Let's inform all employees separately on sequential days.

import "rocketlaunchr/dataframe-go/utils/utime"

mts, _ := utime.NewSeriesTime(ctx, "meeting time", "1D", time.Now().UTC(), false, utime.NewSeriesTimeOptions{Size: &[]int{8}[0]})
df.AddSeries(mts, nil)

Filtering

Let's filter out our senior employees (they have titles) for no reason.

filterFn := dataframe.FilterDataFrameFn(func(vals map[interface{}]interface{}, row, nRows int) (dataframe.FilterAction, error) {
    if vals["title"] == nil {
