Tabulator without pandas

hi, I’m building a simple dashboard that, based on options on the left sidebar, displays different tables on the main section. I’m reading the inputs from a json file, converting to pandas dataframe and using tabulator to display the table. I’m converting the file to pyodide to share as a static file.
I assume that adding pandas as dependency makes the file bigger and slower to load than necessary. Is there a way to feed json data directly to the tabulator, instead of a pandas dataframe?
