A subclass of HttpResponse which will transform a QuerySet, or sequence of sequences, into either an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file formatted for Excel, depending on the amount of data.

Project description


This is an overhaul of which was originally

  • added class detection for values, and will use the value str(class_value)

  • added support for floats, dollar strings, and comma separated number strings that were broken in other forks

  • refactored the code to resemble an actual class, as opposed to one giant init function

  • removed the performance killing import every time you write a sheet, xlwt is required. If you don’t like it use a CSV writer

  • refactored the CSV writing portion of the code to actually use python’s csv class

  • added width auto adjustment


from excel_response3 import ExcelResponse

def excelview(request):
    objs = SomeModel.objects.all()
    return ExcelResponse(objs)


from excel_response3 import ExcelResponse

def excelview(request):
    data = [
        ['Column 1', 'Column 2'],
    return ExcelResponse(data, 'my_data')

Constructor Kwargs

  • headers - an array containing column headers

  • output_name - maintaining this kwarg, but tries first to use the 2nd arg passed when defining the class

  • encoding - defaults to ‘utf8’

  • sheet_name - defaults to ‘Sheet 1’

  • blanks_for_none - replace None values with ’’, defaults to True
