Full Version: instant update of graph within selected time range
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I’m developing a project where I have a large .csv file (>3 000 000 lines) with multiple columns. Depending on the input of the user I want to display a certain column as a graph.
I wrote the following code which works but which is very slow. At the start I copy all the data from the csv file to a df. When the user inputs the requested column, I copy only the requested column to a new df and display that df.
Is it possible to make the code run faster?
Now I also want to be able to select a certain time range (index of df) but I don’t see what’s the easiest way to do that. Is there a possibility to select a range of lines and copy only these lines to the new df??

import as web
import datetime
import dash
import dash_core_components as dcc
import dash_html_components as html
from dash.dependencies import Input, Output
import pandas as pd

app = dash.Dash()

df = pd.read_csv("sitka_weather_2014.csv")
df.set_index('AKST', inplace=True)

app.layout = html.Div(children=[
        Symbol to graph:
    dcc.Input(id='input', value='1', type='text'),

    Output(component_id='output-graph', component_property='children'),
    [Input(component_id='input', component_property='value')]
def update_value(input_data):
    start = datetime.datetime(2015, 1, 1)
    end =

    df_display = df[df.columns[cols]]
    df_display.columns = ['column1']

    return dcc.Graph(
            'data': [
                {'x': df_display.index, 'y': df_display.column1, 'type': 'line', 'name': input_data},
            'layout': {
                'title': input_data

if __name__ == '__main__':

Thanks in advance
