Store numpy arrays in sqlite

Use numpy.getbuffer (or sqlite3.Binary) in combination with numpy.frombuffer to lug numpy data in and out of the sqlite3 database:
import sqlite3, numpy

r1d = numpy.random.randn(10)

con = sqlite3.connect(':memory:')
con.execute("CREATE TABLE eye(id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, desc TEXT, data BLOB)")
con.execute("INSERT INTO eye(desc,data) VALUES(?,?)", ("1d", sqlite3.Binary(r1d)))
con.execute("INSERT INTO eye(desc,data) VALUES(?,?)", ("1d", numpy.getbuffer(r1d)))
res = con.execute("SELECT * FROM eye").fetchall()
con.close()

#res ->
#[(1, u'1d', <read-write buffer ptr 0x10371b220, size 80 at 0x10371b1e0>),
# (2, u'1d', <read-write buffer ptr 0x10371b190, size 80 at 0x10371b150>)]

print r1d - numpy.frombuffer(res[0][2])
#->[ 0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.]

print r1d - numpy.frombuffer(res[1][2])
#->[ 0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.]

Note that for work where data types other than float and shapes other than 1d are needed you will also need to keep track of dtype and shape and store those in the database so you can pass them to numpy.frombuffer

Flowing text in inkscape (Poster making)

You can flow text into arbitrary shapes in inkscape. (From a hint here).

You simply create a text box, type your text into it, create a frame with some drawing tool, select both the text box and the frame (click and shift) and then go to text->flow into frame.

UPDATE:

The omnipresent anonymous asked:
Trying to enter sentence so that text forms the number three...any ideas?
The solution:
Type '3' using the text toolConvert to path using object->pathSize as necessaryRemove fillUngroupType in actual text in new text boxSelect the text and the '3' pathFlow the text

Pandas panel = collection of tables/data frames aligned by index and column

Pandas panel provides a nice way to collect related data frames together while maintaining correspondence between the index and column values:


import pandas as pd, pylab #Full dimensions of a slice of our panel index = ['1','2','3','4'] #major_index columns = ['a','b','c'] #minor_index df = pd.DataFrame(pylab.randn(4,3),columns=columns,index=index) #A full slice of the panel df2 = pd.DataFrame(pylab.randn(3,2),columns=['a','c'],index=['1','3','4']) #A partial slice df3 = pd.DataFrame(pylab.randn(2,2),columns=['a','b'],index=['2','4']) #Another partial slice df4 = pd.DataFrame(pylab.randn(2,2),columns=['d','e'],index=['5','6']) #Partial slice with a new column and index pn = pd.Panel({'A': df}) pn['B'] = df2 pn['C'] = df3 pn['D'] = df4 for key in pn.items: print pn[key] -> output …

Drawing circles using matplotlib

Use the pylab.Circle command

import pylab #Imports matplotlib and a host of other useful modules cir1 = pylab.Circle((0,0), radius=0.75, fc='y') #Creates a patch that looks like a circle (fc= face color) cir2 = pylab.Circle((.5,.5), radius=0.25, alpha =.2, fc='b') #Repeat (alpha=.2 means make it very translucent) ax = pylab.axes(aspect=1) #Creates empty axes (aspect=1 means scale things so that circles look like circles) ax.add_patch(cir1) #Grab the current axes, add the patch to it ax.add_patch(cir2) #Repeat pylab.show()
