danfo.LabelEncoder
Encode target labels with value between 0 and n_classes-1.
class danfo.LabelEncoder
danfo.js provides the LabelEncoder class for encoding Series and Arrays to integer between 0 and n_classes -1. This is mostly used as a preprocessing step before most machine learning tasks.
The API is similar to sklearn's LabelEncoder, and provides a fit and transform method.

Examples

Label Encode values in a Series

Node
const dfd = require('danfojs-node')
let data = ["dog","cat","man","dog","cat","man","man","cat"]
let series = new dfd.Series(data)
let encode = new dfd.LabelEncoder()
encode.fit(series)
console.log(encode);
let sf_enc = encode.transform(series.values)
console.log(sf_enc)
let new_sf = encode.transform(["dog","man"])
console.log(new_sf)
Output
LabelEncoder { '$labels': { dog: 0, cat: 1, man: 2 } }
[
0, 1, 2, 0,
1, 2, 2, 1
]
[ 0, 2 ]
Labels not found in the original data used for fitting are represented with -1
Node
Browser
const dfd = require("danfojs-node")
let data = { fruits: ['pear', 'mango', "pawpaw", "mango", "bean"] ,
Count: [20, 30, 89, 12, 30],
Country: ["NG", "NG", "GH", "RU", "RU"]}
let df = new dfd.DataFrame(data)
let encode = new dfd.LabelEncoder()
encode.fit(df['fruits'])
console.log(encode);
let sf_enc = encode.transform(df['fruits'].values)
console.log(sf_enc);
let new_sf = encode.transform(["mango","mane"])
console.log(new_sf);
Output
LabelEncoder { '$labels': { pear: 0, mango: 1, pawpaw: 2, bean: 3 } }
[ 0, 1, 2, 1, 3 ]
[ 1, -1 ]
