**pyexcel-xlsxr** is a specialized xlsx reader using lxml. It does partial reading, meaning
it wont load all content into memory.


lxml installation
=================

This library depends on lxml. Because its availablity, the use of this library is restricted.

for PyPy, lxml == 3.4.4 are tested to work well. But lxml above 3.4.4 is difficult to get installed.

for Python 3.7, please use lxml==4.1.1.

Otherwise, this library works OK with lxml 3.4.4 or above.



Known constraints
==================

Fonts, colors and charts are not supported.

Installation
================================================================================


You can install pyexcel-xlsxr via pip:

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install pyexcel-xlsxr


or clone it and install it:

.. code-block:: bash

$ git clone https://github.com/pyexcel/pyexcel-xlsxr.git
$ cd pyexcel-xlsxr
$ python setup.py install

Support the project
================================================================================

If your company has embedded pyexcel and its components into a revenue generating
product, please support me on `patreon <https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?u=5537627>`_
or `bounty source <https://salt.bountysource.com/teams/chfw-pyexcel>`_ 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 <https://www.patreon.com/pyexcel/posts>`_.

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.


Usage
================================================================================

As a standalone library
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Read from an xlsx file
********************************************************************************

Here's the sample code:

.. code-block:: python

>>> from pyexcel_xlsxr import get_data
>>> data = get_data("your_file.xlsx")
>>> import json
>>> print(json.dumps(data))
{"Sheet 1": [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]], "Sheet 2": [["row 1", "row 2", "row 3"]]}



Read from an xlsx from memory
********************************************************************************

Continue from previous example:

.. code-block:: python

>>> # This is just an illustration
>>> # In reality, you might deal with xlsx file upload
>>> # where you will read from requests.FILES['YOUR_XLSX_FILE']
>>> data = get_data(io)
>>> print(json.dumps(data))
{"Sheet 1": [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]], "Sheet 2": [[7, 8, 9], [10, 11, 12]]}


Pagination feature
********************************************************************************



Let's assume the following file is a huge xlsx file:

.. code-block:: python

>>> huge_data = [
... [1, 21, 31],
... [2, 22, 32],
... [3, 23, 33],
... [4, 24, 34],
... [5, 25, 35],
... [6, 26, 36]
... ]
>>> sheetx = {
... "huge": huge_data
... }
>>> save_data("huge_file.xlsx", sheetx)

And let's pretend to read partial data:

.. code-block:: python

>>> partial_data = get_data("huge_file.xlsx", start_row=2, row_limit=3)
>>> print(json.dumps(partial_data))
{"huge": [[3, 23, 33], [4, 24, 34], [5, 25, 35]]}

And you could as well do the same for columns:

.. code-block:: python

>>> partial_data = get_data("huge_file.xlsx", start_column=1, column_limit=2)
>>> print(json.dumps(partial_data))
{"huge": [[21, 31], [22, 32], [23, 33], [24, 34], [25, 35], [26, 36]]}

Obvious, you could do both at the same time:

.. code-block:: python

>>> partial_data = get_data("huge_file.xlsx",
... start_row=2, row_limit=3,
... start_column=1, column_limit=2)
>>> print(json.dumps(partial_data))
{"huge": [[23, 33], [24, 34], [25, 35]]}

As a pyexcel plugin
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No longer, explicit import is needed since pyexcel version 0.2.2. Instead,
this library is auto-loaded. So if you want to read data in xlsx format,
installing it is enough.


Reading from an xlsx file
********************************************************************************

Here is the sample code:

.. code-block:: python

>>> import pyexcel as pe
>>> sheet = pe.get_book(file_name="your_file.xlsx")
>>> sheet
Sheet 1:
+---+---+---+
| 1 | 2 | 3 |
+---+---+---+
| 4 | 5 | 6 |
+---+---+---+
Sheet 2:
+-------+-------+-------+
| row 1 | row 2 | row 3 |
+-------+-------+-------+



Reading from a IO instance
********************************************************************************

You got to wrap the binary content with stream to get xlsx working:

.. code-block:: python

>>> # This is just an illustration
>>> # In reality, you might deal with xlsx file upload
>>> # where you will read from requests.FILES['YOUR_XLSX_FILE']
>>> xlsxfile = "another_file.xlsx"
>>> with open(xlsxfile, "rb") as f:
... content = f.read()
... r = pe.get_book(file_type="xlsx", file_content=content)
... print(r)
...
Sheet 1:
+---+---+---+
| 1 | 2 | 3 |
+---+---+---+
| 4 | 5 | 6 |
+---+---+---+
Sheet 2:
+-------+-------+-------+
| row 1 | row 2 | row 3 |
+-------+-------+-------+

Developer guide
==================

Development steps for code changes

#. git clone https://github.com/pyexcel/pyexcel-xlsxr.git
#. cd pyexcel-xlsxr

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

#. pip install --upgrade setuptools pip

Then install relevant development requirements:

#. pip install -r rnd_requirements.txt # if such a file exists
#. pip install -r requirements.txt
#. pip install -r tests/requirements.txt

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

.. note::

As to rnd_requirements.txt, usually, it is created when a dependent
library is not released. Once the dependecy is installed
(will be released), the future
version of the dependency in the requirements.txt will be valid.


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

How to update test environment and update documentation
---------------------------------------------------------

Additional steps are required:

#. pip install moban
#. git clone https://github.com/moremoban/setupmobans.git # generic setup
#. git clone https://github.com/pyexcel/pyexcel-commons.git commons
#. make your changes in `.moban.d` directory, then issue command `moban`

What is pyexcel-commons
---------------------------------

Many information that are shared across pyexcel projects, such as: this developer guide, license info, etc. are stored in `pyexcel-commons` project.

What is .moban.d
---------------------------------

`.moban.d` stores the specific meta data for the library.

Acceptance criteria
-------------------

#. Has Test cases written
#. Has all code lines tested
#. Passes all Travis CI builds
#. Has fair amount of documentation if your change is complex
#. Please update CHANGELOG.rst
#. Please add yourself to CONTRIBUTORS.rst
#. Agree on NEW BSD License for your contribution
