read Microsoft Excel tm xlsb file

Project description

Support the project

If your company has embedded pyexcel and its components into a revenue generating product, please support me on github, patreon or bounty source to maintain the project and develop it further.

If you are an individual, you are welcome to support me too and for however long you feel like. As my backer, you will receive early access to pyexcel related contents.

And your issues will get prioritized if you would like to become my patreon as pyexcel pro user.

With your financial support, I will be able to invest a little bit more time in coding, documentation and writing interesting posts.


pyexcel-xlsbr does read Microsoft Excel tm xlsb file. So far, it can read data out but cannot recognize date time format from float datat type.


You can install pyexcel-xlsbr via pip:

$ pip install pyexcel-xlsbr

or clone it and install it:

$ git clone
$ cd pyexcel-xlsbr
$ python install

Development guide

Development steps for code changes

  1. git clone

  2. cd pyexcel-xlsbr

Upgrade your setup tools and pip. They are needed for development and testing only:

  1. pip install –upgrade setuptools pip

Then install relevant development requirements:

  1. pip install -r rnd_requirements.txt # if such a file exists

  2. pip install -r requirements.txt

  3. pip install -r tests/requirements.txt

Once you have finished your changes, please provide test case(s), relevant documentation and update CHANGELOG.rst.

How to test your contribution

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:

$ make

On Windows systems, please issue this command:

> test.bat

Before you commit

Please run:

$ make format

so as to beautify your code otherwise travis-ci may fail your unit test.
