Render a DataFrame to a console-friendly tabular output.

Parameters
bufstr, Path or StringIO-like, optional, default None (Not supported in Dask)

Buffer to write to. If None, the output is returned as a string.

columnssequence, optional, default None (Not supported in Dask)

The subset of columns to write. Writes all columns by default.

col_spaceint, list or dict of int, optional (Not supported in Dask)

The minimum width of each column.

headerbool or sequence, optional (Not supported in Dask)

Write out the column names. If a list of strings is given, it is assumed to be aliases for the column names.

indexbool, optional, default True (Not supported in Dask)

Whether to print index (row) labels.

na_repstr, optional, default ‘NaN’ (Not supported in Dask)

String representation of NaN to use.

formatterslist, tuple or dict of one-param. functions, optional (Not supported in Dask)

Formatter functions to apply to columns’ elements by position or name. The result of each function must be a unicode string. List/tuple must be of length equal to the number of columns.

float_formatone-parameter function, optional, default None (Not supported in Dask)

Formatter function to apply to columns’ elements if they are floats. This function must return a unicode string and will be applied only to the non-NaN elements, with NaN being handled by na_rep.

This docstring was copied from pandas.core.frame.DataFrame.to_string.

Some inconsistencies with the Dask version may exist.

Changed in version 1.2.0.

sparsifybool, optional, default True (Not supported in Dask)

Set to False for a DataFrame with a hierarchical index to print every multiindex key at each row.

index_namesbool, optional, default True (Not supported in Dask)

Prints the names of the indexes.

justifystr, default None (Not supported in Dask)

How to justify the column labels. If None uses the option from the print configuration (controlled by set_option), ‘right’ out of the box. Valid values are

  • left

  • right

  • justify-all

  • start

  • end

  • inherit

  • match-parent

  • initial

  • unset.

max_rowsint, optional

Maximum number of rows to display in the console.

min_rowsint, optional (Not supported in Dask)

The number of rows to display in the console in a truncated repr (when number of rows is above max_rows).

max_colsint, optional (Not supported in Dask)

Maximum number of columns to display in the console.

show_dimensionsbool, default False (Not supported in Dask)

Display DataFrame dimensions (number of rows by number of columns).
