I had just ran into the same error, and for me the issue was that the column names were integers and not strings. so then the dictionary created in

columns=[{'name': i, 'id': i,} for i in df.columns]

gets an error because it will read {‘name’: 2013, ‘id’: ‘2013’} and not {‘name’: ‘2013’, ‘id’: ‘2013’}.

So how do you turn that key ‘name’'s value to a string?

With something like this:

columns=[{'name': str(i), 'id': str(i)} for i in df.columns]
