classmethod DataFrame.from_view(view, name, dry=False)[source]

Create a DataFrame from a View.

This classmethod will construct a data frame object in the engine, fill it with the data read from the View, and return a corresponding DataFrame handle.

view (View):

The view from which we want to read the data.

name (str):

Name of the data frame to be created.

dry (bool, optional):

If set to True, then the data will not actually be read. Instead, the method will only return the roles it would have used. This can be used to hard-code roles when setting up a pipeline.


Handler of the underlying data.
