Pandas vs Metaflow: What are the differences?
Pandas: High-performance, easy-to-use data structures and data analysis tools for the Python programming language. Flexible and powerful data analysis / manipulation library for Python, providing labeled data structures similar to R data.frame objects, statistical functions, and much more; Metaflow: Build and manage real-life data science projects with ease. It is a human-friendly Python library that helps scientists and engineers build and manage real-life data science projects. It was originally developed at Netflix to boost productivity of data scientists who work on a wide variety of projects from classical statistics to state-of-the-art deep learning.
Pandas and Metaflow can be primarily classified as "Data Science" tools.
Some of the features offered by Pandas are:
- Easy handling of missing data (represented as NaN) in floating point as well as non-floating point data
- Size mutability: columns can be inserted and deleted from DataFrame and higher dimensional objects
- Automatic and explicit data alignment: objects can be explicitly aligned to a set of labels, or the user can simply ignore the labels and let Series, DataFrame, etc. automatically align the data for you in computations
On the other hand, Metaflow provides the following key features:
- End-to-end ML Platform
- Model with your favorite tools
- Powered by the AWS cloud
Pandas and Metaflow are both open source tools. Pandas with 24.6K GitHub stars and 9.91K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Metaflow with 3.18K GitHub stars and 230 GitHub forks.
