This package provides an easy way to load the datasets in vega-datasets from julia.
You can install this package from the julia REPL with the following command:
The package only exports one function that takes the name of a dataset and returns a
VegaDataset with that data:
using VegaDatasets vg = dataset("iris")
VegaDataset implements the iterable tables interface, so it can be passed to any sink that accepts iterable tables.
For example, to convert a dataset into a
DataFrame, you can write:
using VegaDatasets, DataFrames df = DataFrame(dataset("iris"))
You can pipe a
VegaDataset directly into a VegaLite.jl plot:
using VegaLite, VegaDatasets dataset("iris") |> @vlplot(:point, x=:sepalLength, y=:petalWidth)
The following datasets are not tabular in nature:
In those cases an object is returned that can be lowered to JSON, or one can access the
.path property for such an object to get a path to the location of the dataset.
