Exports your Discogs collection or wantlist into a xlsx file.

Project description


Export your Discogs collection or wantlist into a xlsx file.


This tool will try to export your collection or wantlist from Discogs into a .xlsx file.

The time required to perform the export will depend on the size of your collection, or wantlist. Discogs requests to the API are throttled to 60 per minute for authenticated requests, for that reason for large collections, or wantlists, the export can take hours to perform.


There are a couple of things needed for the tool to work.

Python, version 3.9 or above, needs to be installed on your local computer. You will also need a Discogs account.


A Discogs user account is required (to obtain the ratings from). You can create an account at if you do not have one already.

A Discogs personal token is also required. You can obtain one at

For price recommendations (--prices option) the Discogs Seller Settings are required.

Python 3.x

Python version 3.9 or above is required for the tool to work. Python setup can be found here.

The following python modules are also required to run the tool:

  • progress >= 1.5
  • requests >= 2.25.1
  • xlsxwriter >= 3.0.0


The simplest way to install this tool is using pip:

pip3 install discogs2xlsx

A Virtual Environment can be created using the follow command:

python3 -m venv .venv/

After creating the Virtual Environment the same will have to be activated, run the following command to do that:

source venv/bin/activate

To build and run the tool some Python modules are required. These modules can be installed using the following command:

pip3 --quiet install --upgrade --requirement requirements.txt build

Finaly the Python package for this tool can be created with the command:

python3 -m build --wheel

After this you should endup with a wheel file (*.whl) inside a folder called dist.

The tool can be install using the wheel file and pip3:

pip3 --quiet install dist/discogs2xlsx-*.whl
