Insert an actual image in a dataframe cell

Insert an actual image in a dataframe cell


Is it possible to insert an actual image in a dataframe cell so one can download it as an excel output? You can do it in python using xlsxwriter. Do we have similar option in dataiku?

Dataiku will allow you to download your content into Excel, but for this you would need to embed the images inside of pandas itself.

I don't think this is possible at the moment, and can only be achieved by rendering the images when the dataframe is displayed, but not actually saved with it. See here for a demo on how to do that.

Having said that, given that xlsxwriter is a Python package, you could handle the entire process inside of a Python recipe, which would include the file generation portion.

Good luck!
