Python, Tips, Data1 min read

Did you know about .background_gradient()? Before today no, I did not!

Foggy forest as a background - Arthur Camberlein

I did not ... and now I do! And that thanks to a tweet from Karina Bartolomé and the screen capture below:

What is .background_gradient()?

It is a styling format from the library pandas in Python.

If you want to know more and read the documentation, you can follow this link

Pandas is one of the library I recommend you to install on my article How to import python libraries

Example from the tweet

If you want to copy/paste this coe, I reproduced it for you below:

1import pandas as pd
3df = pd.read_csv('')
6 .groupby
7 .agg(
8 n = ('PassengerId','count')
9 survivors = ('Survived','sum')
10 p_survivors = ('Survived','mean')
11 )
12 .style
13 .background_gradient(subset=['p_survivors'], vmin=0, vmax=1, cmap='colorwarn_r')
14 .background_gradient(subset=['n','survivors'], cmap='blues')

For the purpose of this example, it was done using a Python Notebook
