Hello, I am a relatively new student here at Codecademy and I am currently doing this proyect. In the editor I only have the console to help me visualize the DataFrame, but throughout the whole Pandas lesson I was aided with a beautiful representation of the DF in a small explorer with a local host. Is there any way I can recreate that system on my own computer for challenge projects like these?
This normally exists in one form on another in most editors that support interactive Python. Standalone Jupyter notebook/lab have extensions for this purpose, vs code has an interactive Python window (jupyter based), Spyder has a variable explorer (IPython based), PyCharm has a variables (something) viewing pane.
I’m sure there are others available so pick your preferred editor and have a little look around. If it’s available for your editor then it’s normally under a title like variable inspector/explorer.
Look into Google Colab too. it’s an app that you add to your Google Drive. It’s cloud-based and based on Jupyter Notebook. You can import CSV files there (either a file upload from your machine or from your Drive, etc) like the Jeopardy csv file, or grab data using an API or build a web scraper using BeautifulSoup, etc. etc.
