Hello, as I was trying to not use some attributes from a dataclass when creating a pandas.DataFrame, I noticed that even though the specific attribute was set as field(repr=False), it persisted in the data frame.
It would be nice to “hide” those attributes in the dict representation.
I did some tests changing two lines in the _asdict_inner function and it worked nicely.
def _asdict_inner(obj, dict_factory): if _is_dataclass_instance(obj): result =  for f in fields(obj): value = _asdict_inner(getattr(obj, f.name), dict_factory) if not f.repr: continue result.append((f.name, value)) return dict_factory(result)
So, I don’t fully know the implications of this modification, but it would be nice to also remove a attribute from dict representation when repr=False, or even create a field where you choose not to pass along these attributes.
