csvx: painless csv

Project Description

A csv library that supports 2 and 3, does the unicode thing properly, and lets you read rows as ordered dictionaries so that the ordering stays correct by default.

Which makes things pretty easy.

Example. You’ve got a csv you want to sanitize by removing a column of passwords.

Here’s how that looks.

import csvx

with csvx.OrderedDictReader('unsanitized.csv') as csv_in:
    rows = list(csv_in)

for r in rows:
    del r['password']

with csvx.DictWriter('sanitized.csv') as csv_out:

Simply install with pip:

$ pip install csvx
