Subject [Python] Read dictionary values of DictionaryArray without reading the whole file
Date Thu, 03 Jun 2021 19:55:19 GMT

I have a large parquet file written by pandas with categorical columns
(which are read into Arrow as DictionaryArray). I want to get the value of
the categories in Python (called "dictionary" values in Arrow) without
having to read any other data from the file into memory other than
metadata. Is this possible?

Thank you,
