dask.dataframe.DataFrame.partitions

property DataFrame.partitions

Slice dataframe by partitions

This allows partitionwise slicing of a Dask Dataframe. You can perform normal Numpy-style slicing but now rather than slice elements of the array you slice along partitions so, for example, df.partitions[:5] produces a new Dask Dataframe of the first five partitions.

Returns
A Dask DataFrame

Examples

>>> df.partitions[0]  
>>> df.partitions[:3]  
>>> df.partitions[::10]
