histogram with non-numeric column type

Does bokeh support histograms with character/non-numeric column types ?

Sample -

from bokeh.sampledata.autompg import autompg as df

hist = Histogram(df[‘name’])

show(hist)

Pandas plotting supports it -

df[‘name’].value_counts().plot(kind=‘barh’)

Looks like it's not currently supported in bokeh.charts natively. Could you make a feature request issue on GitHub for this? In the mean time you could create a histogram "by hand" using the slightly lower level bokeh.plotting interface.
