Dataprep lets you prepare your data using a single library with a few lines of code.

Currently, you can use dataprep to:

  • Collect data from common data sources (through dataprep.connector)
  • Do your exploratory data analysis (through dataprep.eda)
  • ...more modules are coming


Repo Version Downloads


pip install -U dataprep

Examples & Usages

The following examples can give you an impression of what dataprep can do:


There are common tasks during the exploratory data analysis stage, like a quick look at the columnar distribution, or understanding the correlations between columns.

The EDA module categorizes these EDA tasks into functions helping you finish EDA tasks with a single function call.

  • Want to understand the distributions for each DataFrame column? Use plot.

  • Want to understand the correlation between columns? Use plot_correlation.

  • Or, if you want to understand the impact of the missing values for each column, use plot_missing.

You can drill down to get more information by given plot, plot_correlation and plot_missing a column name.: E.g. for plot_missing

    for numerical column usingplot:

    for categorical column usingplot:

Connector provides a simple way to collect data from different websites, offering several benefits:

  • A unified API: you can fetch data using one or two lines of code to get data from many websites.
  • Auto Pagination: it automatically does the pagination for you so that you can specify the desired count of the returned results without even considering the count-per-request restriction from the API.
  • Smart API request strategy: it can issue API requests in parallel while respecting the rate limit policy.

In the following examples, you can download the Yelp business search result into a pandas DataFrame, using only two lines of code, without taking deep looking into the Yelp documentation! More examples can be found here: Examples

Some functionalities of DataPrep are inspired by the following packages.

  • Pandas Profiling

    Inspired the report functionality and insights provided in DataPrep.eda.

  • missingno

    Inspired the missing value analysis in DataPrep.eda.
