array.from() function

The array.from() function constructs a table from an array of records. Each record in the array is converted into an output row or record. All records must have the same keys and data types.

import "array"

    rows: [
        {_time: 2020-01-01T00:00:00Z, _field: "exampleField", _value: 3, foo: "bar"},
        {_time: 2020-01-01T00:01:00Z, _field: "exampleField", _value: 4, foo: "bar"},
        {_time: 2020-01-01T00:02:00Z, _field: "exampleField", _value: 1, foo: "bar"},
