Python beginner

  1. Install Python

To get this done got online on the Python website and download the lastest version available.

  1. Install Eypk


Before this step you might want to install a virtual environment to not change your main Python setup.

To get Epyk install then:

pip install epyk

This will download the most recent version from the centralised Pypi repository

  1. Create a project repository

With Epyk you will be able to generate from your data web pages. To do so you will need to have a dedicated project and folder in which all the scripts to be transpiled are stored.

It is also from this folder that all the CLI feature will be run

  1. Generate a demo script

Epyk provides a demo script to illustrate how its works. This script is quite small but it provide good examples of components and interactivity. To get it from your project, open a console and run the below command line:

epyk.exe demo

Once this run you should see a file

  1. Get the web page

Then still in your folder run the below command line to get the web page automatically generated from your python code:

epyk.exe transpile
  1. Change the script

Now you can amend the script by for example changing mocks.popularity_2020 to use your data instead. Usually data in Epyk are lis of dictionaries, namely:

my_data = [
    {"key1": "value1", "key2": "value2"},
    {"key1": "value1", "key2": "value2"},

But if you are using Pandas to simplify the data transformation you can easily get this object from any Pandas dataframe:

If you do not know where to start and not sure which data to use you can also have a look at this package pandas_datareader. It will allow you to retrieve quite a lot of data to play with
