Getting started

Get started in Quadratic by creating your first blank sheet or picking an example file.

Here is a list of some common first things to do in Quadratic.

Write your first line of Python code 🐍

Start your first first line of code by simply pressing / after clicking a cell. This will open the command palette.

Picking your cell type will open the editor where you can start writing code.

In Quadratic you can reference cells in the spreadsheet to use in your code, and you can return results from your Python analysis back to the spreadsheet. By default, the last line of code is returned to the spreadsheet.

Single referenced cells are put in a variable with the appropriate data type. Multi-line references are placed in a DataFrame. You can use the first value in the sheet as a DataFrame header by setting first_row_header=True

Use Formulas 🔢

Formulas in Quadratic are similar to how you'd expect in any spreadsheet. Formulas are relatively referenced as seen below.

To learn more about Formulas, visit the Formulas section of the docs.

You can go as deep as you'd like in Quadratic via the combo of the spreadsheet, formulas, and Python. Use the docs sidebar to navigate to your sections of interest.
