A command utility to read and write data in csv, tsv, xls, xlsx and ods format.
If your company has embedded pyexcel and its components into a revenue generating product, please support me on patreon to maintain the project and develop it further.
If you are an individual, you are welcome to support me too on patreon and for however long you feel like to. As a patreon, you will receive early access to pyexcel related contents.
With your financial support, I will be able to invest a little bit more time in coding, documentation and writing interesting posts.
Fonts, colors and charts are not supported.
pyexcel-cli brings pyexcel to make it easy to consume/produce information stored in excel files on command line interface. This library can turn the excel data into a list of lists, a list of records(dictionaries), dictionaries of lists. And vice versa. Hence it lets you focus on data in shell programming, instead of file formats.
$ cd demo $ pyexcel view --in-browser --output-file-type sortable.html --sheet-index 0 https://github.com/pyexcel/excel2table/raw/master/sample/goog.ods
Here’s what you will get:
You will need to install pyexcel-sortable, which renders it.
Here is another cli example usage:
$ pyexcel view https://github.com/pyexcel/pyexcel-cli/blob/master/tests/fixtures/multiple-sheets.xls Sheet 1: +---+---+---+ | 1 | 2 | 3 | +---+---+---+ | 4 | 5 | 6 | +---+---+---+ | 7 | 8 | 9 | +---+---+---+ Sheet 2: +---+---+---+ | X | Y | Z | +---+---+---+ | 1 | 2 | 3 | +---+---+---+ | 4 | 5 | 6 | +---+---+---+ Sheet 3: +---+---+---+ | O | P | Q | +---+---+---+ | 3 | 2 | 1 | +---+---+---+ | 4 | 3 | 2 | +---+---+---+
Because pyexcel family is loosely coupled, especially for file format supports, you install the libraries that you need to. If you need to support xls format, you will need to install pyexcel-xls. For more information, please see the plugin section. .. _file-format-list: .. _a-map-of-plugins-and-file-formats:<caption>A list of file formats supported by external plugins</caption>

In order to manage the list of plugins installed, you need to use pip to add or remove a plugin. When you use virtualenv, you can have different plugins per virtual environment. In the situation where you have multiple plugins that does the same thing in your environment, you need to tell pyexcel which plugin to use per function call. For example, pyexcel-ods and pyexcel-odsr, and you want to get_array to use pyexcel-odsr. You need to append get_array(…, library=’pyexcel-odsr’).

Development steps for code changes
Upgrade your setup tools and pip. They are needed for development and testing only:
Then install relevant development requirements:
Once you have finished your changes, please provide test case(s), relevant documentation and update CHANGELOG.rst.
Although nose and doctest are both used in code testing, it is adviable that unit tests are put in tests. doctest is incorporated only to make sure the code examples in documentation remain valid across different development releases.
On Linux/Unix systems, please launch your tests like this:
On Windows systems, please issue this command:
Additional steps are required:
