DataFrames For The New Era

Polars is written from the ground up with performance in mind. Its multi-threaded query engine is written in Rust and designed for effective parallelism. Its vectorized and columnar processing enables cache-coherent algorithms and high performance on modern processors.

You will feel right at home with Polars if you are familiar with data wrangling. Its expressions are intuitive and empower you to write code which is readable and performant at the same time.

Polars is and always will be open source. Driven by an active community of developers, everyone is encouraged to add new features and contribute. Polars is free to use under the MIT license.
