ak.singletons#

Defined in awkward.operations.ak_singletons on line 9.

ak.singletons(array, axis=0, *, highlevel=True, behavior=None)#
Parameters
  • array – Array-like data (anything ak.to_layout recognizes).

  • axis (int) – The dimension at which this operation is applied. The outermost dimension is 0, followed by 1, etc., and negative values count backward from the innermost: -1 is the innermost dimension, -2 is the next level up, etc.

  • highlevel (bool) – If True, return an ak.Array; otherwise, return a low-level ak.contents.Content subclass.

  • behavior (None or dict) – Custom ak.behavior for the output array, if high-level.

Returns a singleton list (length 1) wrapping each non-missing value and an empty list (length 0) in place of each missing value.

For example,

>>> array = ak.Array([1.1, 2.2, None, 3.3, None, None, 4.4, 5.5])
>>> ak.singletons(array).show()
[[1.1],
 [2.2],
 [],
 [3.3],
 [],
 [],
 [4.4],
 [5.5]]
