Streamlit in Pandas Version 1.3+


I have faced issues when I’m running some charts in Streamlit using Pandas 1.3 or greater, and to fix it I needed to downgraded the Pandas to any version below 1.3.

The most common error is: TypeError: _translate() missing 2 required positional arguments: ‘sparse_index’ and ‘sparse_cols’

Any update about whether it is planned to be fixed in the future?


Could you provide more info about your issue?

Hi Ferdy,

Yes, we have an internal tool in Streamlit, that it does not work properly on Streamlit when the Pandas version is greater than 1.3. The charts don’t appear on the Streamlit interface, what happens instead is an error message - see below.

TypeError: _translate() missing 2 required positional arguments: 'sparse_index' and 'sparse_cols'

You’d probably better upgrade streamlit instead of downgrading pandas.

Can you create a minimal sample code where we can reproduce the error?

What streamlit version did you use?

This was dealt with almost two years ago.

Yes, I tried it before downgrade Pandas.

I’ll try this one!

Here is the error. I should show a table with stats.

It is pretty much the same error as before. As I said, this was fixed almost two years ago. Your version of streamlit is too old.

Yes, you’re right, in the most updated Streamlit version it’s running.

Thank you!
