Pandas cookbook

pandas is a Python library for doing
data analysis. It's really fast and lets you do exploratory work
incredibly quickly.

The goal of this cookbook is to give you some concrete examples for
getting started with pandas. The docs
are really comprehensive. However, I've often had people
tell me that they have some trouble getting started, so these are
examples with real-world data, and all the bugs and weirdness
that that entails.

I'm working with 3 datasets right now

  • 311 calls in New York
  • How many people were on Montréal's bike paths in 2012
  • Montreal's weather for 2012, hourly

It comes with batteries (data) included, so you can try out all the
examples right away.

How to use this cookbook

You'll need an up-to-date version of IPython Notebook (>= 3.0) and
pandas (>=0.13) for this to work properly

You can get these using pip:

pip install ipython pandas numpy tornado pyzmq jinja2 matplotlib jsonschema

This can be difficult to get set up and require you to compile
a whole bunch of things. I instead use and recommend
Anaconda, which is a Python distribution which
will give you everything you need. It's free and open source.

Once you have pandas and IPython, you can get going!

git clone https://github.com/jvns/pandas-cookbook.git
cd pandas-cookbook/cookbook
ipython notebook

A tab should open up in your browser at http://localhost:8888

Happy pandas!

Running the cookbook inside Docker container.

This repository contains Dockerfile and can be build into a docker container.
To build the container run following command from inside of the repository directory:

docker build -t jvns/pandas-cookbook .

run the container:

docker run -d -p 8888:8888 -e "PASSWORD=MakeAPassword" <IMAGE ID>

you can find out about the id of the image, by checking

docker images

You can also run the container without HTTPS by providing a flag -e USE_HTTP=1

docker run -d -p 8888:8888 -e "PASSWORD=MakeAPassword" -e USE_HTTP=1 <IMAGE ID>

After starting the container, you can access ipython notebook with the cookbook
on port 8888. Remember to use https and authenticate with MakeAPassword.

https://<docker ip>:8888
