Is it possible to make
__repr__ in the code below return a dataframe?
The code below will throw
TypeError: __str__ returned non-string (type DataFrame)
because – I guess –
__repr__ has to return a string.
Or should I replace
__repr__ with some other magic method?
import pandas as pd class Query(): def __init__(self, filename): self.df = pd.read_excel(filename) def __repr__(self): return self.df if __name__ == '__main__': filename = 'some_filename' query = Query(filename) print(query)
__repr__ to return a string, which would be the representation of your dataframe. So, just do:
def __repr__(self): return repr(self.df)
