I want to split the Dataset for graphical reasons, like creating a nice composition on a page, TakeList should do that.

  • $\begingroup$ Under "Properties and relations" in the documentation for TakeList it says how to implement TakeList in terms of TakeDrop, perhaps at least a serviceable workaround. $\endgroup$ – C. E. Dec 4 '18 at 20:56
With[{partition = TakeList[Range@Length@#, #2], d = #}, d /@ partition] &[dataset, {2, 4}]

enter image description here


Dataset /@ TakeList[Normal@dataset, {2, 4}]

same result

or, a cleaner alternative suggested by C.E. in comments,

FoldPairList[TakeDrop, dataset, {2, 4}]

same result

  • $\begingroup$ Dataset /@ TakeList[Normal@dataset, {2, 4}] should be by default I think $\endgroup$ – Fortsaint Dec 5 '18 at 1:42
