Google Colaboratory provides a convenient Jupyter Notebooks-like environment that I actively use. Often, my data sources are located on Google Drive. To use them, there is an easy way to do so by mounting a folder on Google Drive to your Colab Notebook:
# Mount google drive
from google.colab import drive
You will see an invitation to authorize the Notebook access to your Google Drive:
Go to this URL in a browser: https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth?client_id=...
Enter your authorization code:
Mounted at /content/gdrive
Finally, you can define a variable pointing to the folder with your data files:
path = 'gdrive/My Drive/Colab Notebooks/datasets/pandas_manual/'
To use a file named
data.csv just use:
import pandas as pd
data = pd.read_csv(path + 'data.csv')
