Panda dataframe via numpy to ColumnDataSource problem

Hello,

I am new to Python, Bokeh and coding in general so please forgive me if I have done something dumb…

I have created a dataframe of zeroes using numpy and then I’m trying to pass it into a ColumnDataSource object for manipulation in Bokeh. The fact it is zeroes is not important; any time I try and do this using a dataframe created via a numpy array, I get the same error:

import pandas as pd

import numpy as np

from bokeh.models import ColumnDataSource

df = pd.DataFrame(np.zeros((8,8)))

source = ColumnDataSource(df)

The final line throws this error:

ValueError: expected an element of ColumnData(String, Seq(Any)), got {‘index’: array([0, 1, 2, 3… (it then prints out the entire dataframe)

df looks as expected:

0

df.info() gives me this, which also seems in order:

<class ‘pandas.core.frame.DataFrame’>

RangeIndex: 8 entries, 0 to 7

Data columns (total 8 columns):

0 8 non-null float64

4 8 non-null float64

5 8 non-null float64

7 8 non-null float64

dtypes: float64(8)

I’m using:

Pandas version: 0.24.1

Bokeh version: 1.0.4

Numpy version: 1.16.1

Thanks,

An update…

I still get the error if doing:

df = pd.Dataframe(0, index=range(8), colums=(8))

It seems like it has to do with the columns on the dataframe. I was able to get your little bit of code above working by specifying column names:

df = pd.DataFrame(data=np.zeros((8,8)), columns=[‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’, ‘d’, ‘e’, ‘f’, ‘g’, ‘h’])

``

It will NOT work if the column headings are integer types (which I think is what you’re getting by default here). You could avoid explicitly naming your columns by generating a list of ints and converting:

df = pd.DataFrame(data=np.zeros((8,8)), columns=[str(i) for i in np.arange(0, 8)])

``

Try it out.

Hi.

This is exactly correct. Just to state it in other terms: A CDS maps *string* column names to lists/arrays/series of data. It is not possible to have non-string column names (in fact I am surprised to know Pandas allows this).

Thanks,

Bryan
