Import, filter and export tabular data with Python easily

Project description

outputty is a simple Python library that helps you importing, filtering and exporting data. It is composed by a main Table class and a lot of plugins that helps importing and exporting data to/from Table (in future we’ll have filtering plugins). You can write your own plugin easily (see outputty/plugin_*.py for examples).

Some examples of plugins are: CSV, text, HTML and histogram.


Code time!

>>> from outputty import Table
>>> my_table = Table(headers=['name', 'age']) # headers are the columns
>>> my_table.append(('Alvaro Justen', 24)) # a row as tuple
>>> my_table.append({'name': 'Other User', 'age': 99}) # a row as dict
>>> print my_table # a text representation of Table
|      name     | age |
| Alvaro Justen |  24 |
|    Other User |  99 |

>>> print 'First row:', my_table[0] # Table is indexable
First row: [u'Alvaro Justen', 24]

>>> print 'Sum of ages:', sum(my_table['age']) # you can get columns too
Sum of ages: 123

>>> my_table.write('csv', 'my-table.csv') # CSV plugin will save its contents in a file
>>> # let's see what's in the file...
>>> print open('my-table.csv').read()
"Alvaro Justen","24"
"Other User","99"

>>> # let's use HTML plugin!
>>> print my_table.write('html') # without filename `write` will return a string
    <tr class="header">
    <tr class="odd">
      <td>Alvaro Justen</td>
    <tr class="even">
      <td>Other User</td>

The Table class have a lot of other features. To learn more (by examples), read outputty tutorial and see examples. Enjoy! :-)
