Here is how to create a pandas DataFrame from a list in Python.

import pandas

# Create a sample list of lists 
mylist = [[10, 20, 30], [4, 5, 6], [7,8,9]]
# Prepare columns names, one for each sublist
mycolumns = ['Celsius', 'Fahr', 'Kelvin'] 
# Create dataframe from the list of lists
df = pandas.DataFrame(mylist, columns=mycolumns) 
# Print out the dataframe


   Celsius  Fahr  Kelvin

0       10    20      30

1        4     5       6

2        7     8       9


The above example constructs a dataframe from a list of lists. If you just want to create a dataframe from a plain list, the code would be as below:

import pandas
mylist = [10, 20, 30]
mycolumns = ['Celsius']
df = pandas.DataFrame(mylist, columns=mycolumns)
