A great feature of Polars is its query optimiser that can look at your full set of operations for any potential efficiencies. But what if you want to see what’s happening at some intermediate point in the query?
In this case we can add a call to .inspect in our query. This prints the dataframe at that node in the optimised query graph.
We see this in the example below where we do a filter before doing a groupby. By adding
inspect between filter and groupby we can print the output at that point in the query.
This can be very helpful when debugging complex queries!
