Provides generator to read Kami (god) CSV record as list of string.


It's beyond CSV module😱

We often face CSV files like this:

age total number male female
0~4 21303 10867 10436
0 4062 2069 1993
1 4279 2171 2108
2 4285 2152 2133
3 4434 2268 2166
4 4243 2207 2036
5~9 21017 10956 10061
5 4369 2283 2086
6 4345 2213 2132
7 4117 2163 1954
8 4155 2146 2009
9 4031 2151 1880
sum 42320 21823 20497
material: Residents' Culture Department Resident Registration Section      

It's beyond CSV module😱 We just want the population for each age ...

We call such a CSV file Kami CSV.


Let's iterate to read only required row from CSV💡

  • ⚔️ Skips to the row after the header row
  • ⚔️ Skips partition rows
  • ⚔️ Stops iteration bedore footer row


pip install godslayer

Let's resolve above example:

from pathlib import Path

def print_required_row():
    god_slayer_factory = GodSlayerFactory(
        header=["age", "total", "male", "female"],
        partition=[r"^\d*〜\d*$", r"^\d*$", r"^\d*$", r"^\d*$"],
        footer=["sum", r"^\d*$", r"^\d*$", r"^\d*$"],
    god_slayer = god_slayer_factory.create(Path("/path/to/file.csv"))

    for record in god_slayer:
['0', '4062', '2069', '1993']
['1', '4279', '2171', '2108']
['2', '4285', '2152', '2133']
['3', '4434', '2268', '2166']
['4', '4243', '2207', '2036']
['5', '4369', '2283', '2086']
['6', '4345', '2213', '2132']
['7', '4117', '2163', '1954']
['8', '4155', '2146', '2009']
['9', '4031', '2151', '1880']

Note that file will be closeed automatically when variable god_slayer goes out of scope.


Argument of GodSlayerFactory

property type defalut explanation
header Optional[List[str]] None If present, God Slayer will skip to the row after the header row
partition Optional[List[str]] None If present, God Slayer will skip partition rows
footer Optional[List[str]] None If present, God Slayer will stop iteration bedore footer row
encoding str "utf-8" Encoding to open CSV file

How to match list of string with row

  • List of strings has the same length as row
  • All strings in the list are compared with the string at the same index in the row and must be one of the following:
    • Same string
    • Matched the regular expression


What is "Kami CSV"?

"Kami CSV" is a CSV that has become a non-normal form by adding headers, footers, intermediate lines, and notes even though the purpose is to export data. The etymology comes from Kami Excel. It's often found in government office or Legacy company service.
