MPL Table

Create a table with row explanations, column headers, using matplotlib. Intended usage was a small table containing a custom heatmap.


pip install mpl-table


Example usage can be found within tests/, the table is created by passing dataframes containing text values, cell colour values, and text colour values. You’ll probably want to use bbox_inches="tight" when you fig.savefig.

Example output

Example output table.


Wanted to be able to create tables containing heatmaps, along with row explanations and different treatment of high/low values for each row. For some rows the formatting of 100% should be considered positive (typically green), whereas others it should be considered negative (typically red).


Some additional examples of customisation. Currently the sizing of the output table isn’t dynamic, for some tables one might have to adjust the figsize in order for things to fit well, and be mindful of the amount of text used in row meaning text column.

Usage within subplots, wasn’t required for what was needed, but there could be some use in having subplots with these tables.

Different styles – might want to have the header row / row information column without any background colour, or similar stylings. Shouldn’t be hard to do from what’s here, just hasn’t been done.
