Python Pandas reading a csv_file from local machine

hello dear people,

I would like to read a csv file with python pandas directly from my local machine.

Something like:

import pandas as pd

data = pd.read_csv(“C:/desktop/myfile.csv”)

so far i m uploading the csv files first to gitpod and then I am able to read the files but I want to read it directly from the laptop i m using.

Thank you so much for your help!

Hi @OtariGlonti,

Thanks for using Gitpod. Accessing files of your local computer from Gitpod is not possible (without uploading them) because the Gitpod cloud pod has no access to your local file system. You need to upload them first to access them.
