Workspaces

Templates and Components Catalogs

Starting from this release, we are providing a series of templates and components which lower the barrier to building something awesome using Datapane and Python. Check them out in our new Catalogue.

Our first templates include:

Classifier dashboard

A performance dashboard for classifiers. It can be used as a starting point for creating a Datapane report that highlights the performance of multiple classifiers on a dataset.

Social media dashboard

An engagement dashboard for social media. It can be used as a starting point for creating a Datapane report that highlights user engagement with social media channels.

Text-heavy report

A text-heavy report. It can be used as a starting point for creating a text-heavy Datapane report that starts off as a Jupyter Notebook.

Open-source Report Renderer

Prior to this release, our report renderer was a bundled and minified Javascript library which was not open to contributions. As part of porting our Report renderer from React to Vue.js, we've taken the step of open-sourcing the entire renderer, which you can check out on GitHub.

Breaking changes True

Enterprise Renaming

In preparation for unifying our enterprise and public products, we're renaming and upgrading some of our core objects to make them easier to understand.

  • Script will be renamed App
  • Blob will be renamed File
  • The current dp.File block will be split into dp.Media and dp.Attachment
  • Group will be renamed Project
  • Variables will be combined with Docker images into a new Environment system

This is a breaking change, meaning that any new objects you create after the update will need to follow the new syntax. Your existing scripts/blobs/groups should continue to work.

Other Bug Fixes and Improvements

  • Fixed a bug where we didn't show explanatory text for Report Notifications on Org
  • Fixed a bug where dp.Blob.upload_file gave an error for certain filetypes
  • Fixed a bug where nested groups didn't always display correctly in the embed view
  • Fixed a bug where table cells didn't display correctly on Safari browsers
  • Updated our report preview text to sound more professional
  • Added a Divider block (dp.Divider) for more layout control

API-first Signup

In keeping with our vision of being a developer-friendly API-first product, we're launching a new onboarding experience for local client users. After installing Datapane, you'll be prompted to run the following command:

datapane hello-world

This will run some Python code to generate a local HTML report which demonstrates how the product works. After viewing that local report, you can run the following command to create an account and get an API key for hosting reports:

datapane signup

Other Bug Fixes and Improvements

Property Values
Python version 0.12.1
Breaking changes True

  • dp.Markdown replaced with dp.Text for text content
  • dp.Page must use title parameter to set the page title, not label
  • Objects like scripts, blobs and variables now keep their original name instead of being converted to lowercase slugs, for instance my variable won't be renamed tomy_variable. You may need to update any scripts to use the new names (or re-add variables / blobs with the older names).

DataTable Improvements

  • Fixed encoding issue mismatch between dp.Table and dp.DataTable.
