Using Pandas Styler

This may be a very dumb question, but I cannot seem to see the output of the Pandas Styler. I use the following simple example posted previously by another user.

df = pd.DataFrame([[3,2,10,4],[20,1,3,2],[5,4,6,1]])
df.style.background_gradient()


I understand the output of df.style creates a Styler object but how can I actually visualize this?

Answer

The dataframe styling will only be rendered in Jupyter notebooks. Your code, for instance, looks like this:

You can experiment with notebooks on tmpnb.org if you don't have it installed.
