How to plot table from pandas dataframe

+2
−0

MWE

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt


df = pd.DataFrame(np.random.rand(9, 4), columns=['a', 'b', 'c', 'd'])
df.plot.bar(table=True) # don't want plot, just want table
# df.plot.table() # what I would hope
plt.show()

Busy Bar with Table

Question

How do I generate a table in its own figure from a pandas dataframe?

Notes

Notice the table appended to the graph above is hardly legible and gets cut off. I am not looking to fix legibility as is though, I need a separate figure for use in a paper.

I do not want to have to mess with generating matplotlib axes objects like for pandas.plotting.table() or in this example.

I want to be able to create the table just using and providing the df, as opposed to manually formatting the data into a latex table.

How do you figure?

What do you mean? I just want to understand what you want. Your question is ostensibly about matplotlib tables but there are hints in it that you might prefer a latex table. Do you really want a matplotlib table?

Either way it's going into latex, .png or table. I'm open to both, but only a solution that lets me export to that format without me manually re-entering data.
