Data Datalore Enterprise News Releases Reporting

Introducing Datalore Enterprise 2022.1: Statistics Tab, Interactive Reports Upgrade, CSV File Editing, and More

Hello everyone,

Back in November 2021, we introduced two major features to Datalore Enterprise: interactive reports for sharing data insights and the Visualize tab for faster data exploration.

In Datalore Enterprise 2022.1, we’ve made improvements to these two workflows, and more. Read on to learn what else is new!

Interactive reports upgrade

Introducing Reactive mode to reports

In Datalore you can turn your Python, R, Scala, and Kotlin notebooks into web data apps, which your colleagues can access via a link – even if they don’t have a Datalore account. 

With Datalore Enterprise 2022.1, you can use Reactive mode in your interactive reports to update the report contents as the users interact with it. Without Reactive mode switched on, users will need to click the Recompute button to update the results each time. 

Interactive reports in Datalore Enterprise 2022.1

You can try the interactive reports feature in our hosted cloud version (Community and Pro plans are available) or request a Datalore Enterprise trial for an on-premises setup.

Datalore Enterprise is a data science notebook platform for teams that can be hosted privately, on-premises, or in the cloud.

New interactive controls

We’ve added new interactive controls to the Datalore notebooks, and now you can add:

  • Checkboxes that will assign a certain variable with either a True or False value.
  • A multi-select option for dropdowns.
  • A text area for longer text inputs.
  • Visibility control that will collapse the specified number of subsequent cells in the reports.
  • Upper and lower limits that can be defined from variables in the Slider controls.

New data exploration features

Statistics tab

With one click, you can get essential descriptive statistics for a DataFrame inside a separate Statistics tab. For categorical columns, you will see the distribution of values, and for numerical columns, Datalore will calculate the min, max, median, standard deviation, percentiles, and also highlight the percentage of zeros and outliers.

Visualize tab improvements

We’ve updated the look and feel of the Visualize tab:

  • Plots are now bigger
  • The plot configuration has been moved to the left-hand side of the tab
  • Lets-plot library graphics have been updated

We’ve also added seamless transitions from the Visualize tab to Chart cells, where you can further customize plots, as well as create multi-layered visualizations and collaborate on them.

CSV file previews and editing

With Datalore Enterprise 2022.1 you can open, create, and edit CSV and TSV files right inside the Datalore editor. It is possible to modify the cells’ contents, add new rows and columns, and sort the data.

Сut-off timer for background computation

Background computation mode in Datalore allows you to run computations even if the browser tab is closed. In this release, we’ve added the ability to set when the notebook computation will shut down after the kernel goes idle. If you are training your models on expensive-to-run machines, this feature will help you reduce computation costs. To help you check whether Background computation is switched on, we’ve added an indicator to the bottom-right corner of the editor.

Audit log

You can turn on user action logging inside your on-premises setups. The logs will help you investigate any compliance requests.

Tracking collaborator’s cursors

You can navigate to a collaborator’s cursor and follow along in real time simply by clicking on the collaborator’s account icon in the upper-right corner.

Other improvements

  • Reports can be published in full width mode to use the entire width of the browser window.
  • Reports have improved error highlighting.
  • Variable viewer now displays the object size.
  • Worksheets can be duplicated in the notebook.
  • The viewport will extend when the last cell of the notebook is scrolled past.
  • Cells that are queued for processing are indicated better.
  • Empty code cells are now automatically hidden in the reports.

30-day free trial
