Project Description

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.

Hightlighted features:

  1. View data in the excel files without Microsoft Office or Open Office
  2. Transcode data among supported excel file formats
  3. Merge files in various excel file formats into one
  4. Split a multi-sheet excel file into single sheet files
  5. Find difference in data between two excel files


Here is an example usage:

$ pyexcel view
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 |
