Project Description

pyexcel-xlsxw is a tiny wrapper library to write data in xlsx and xlsm fromat using xlsxwriter. You are likely to use it with pyexcel.

Known constraints

Fonts, colors and charts are not supported.

Installation

Recently, pyexcel(0.2.2+) and its plugins(0.2.0+) started using newer version of setuptools. Please upgrade your setup tools before install latest pyexcel components:

$ pip install --upgrade setuptools

You can install it via pip:

$ pip install pyexcel-xlsxw

or clone it and install it:

$ git clone http://github.com/pyexcel/pyexcel-xlsxw.git
$ cd pyexcel-xlsxw
$ python setup.py install

Usage

As a standalone library

Write to an xlsx file

Here’s the sample code to write a dictionary to an xlsx file:

>>> from pyexcel_xlsxw import save_data
>>> data = OrderedDict() # from collections import OrderedDict
>>> data.update({"Sheet 1": [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]]})
>>> data.update({"Sheet 2": [["row 1", "row 2", "row 3"]]})
>>> save_data("your_file.xlsx", data)

Here’s the sample code to help you read the data back. You will need to install pyexcel-xls or pyexcel-xlsx.

>>> from pyexcel_io 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"]]}

Write an xlsx to memory

Here’s the sample code to write a dictionary to an xlsx file:

>>> from pyexcel_xlsxw import save_data
>>> data = OrderedDict()
>>> data.update({"Sheet 1": [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]]})
>>> data.update({"Sheet 2": [[7, 8, 9], [10, 11, 12]]})
>>> io = StringIO()
>>> save_data(io, data)
>>> # do something with the io
>>> # In reality, you might give it to your http response
>>> # object for downloading

Here’s the sample code to help you read the data back. You will need to install pyexcel-xls or pyexcel-xlsx.

>>> # 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, 'xlsx')
>>> print(json.dumps(data))
{"Sheet 1": [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]], "Sheet 2": [[7, 8, 9], [10, 11, 12]]}

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.

Any version under pyexcel 0.2.2, you have to keep doing the following:

Import it in your file to enable this plugin:

from pyexcel.ext import xlsxw

Please note only pyexcel version 0.0.4+ support this.

Let’s assume we have data as the following.

>>> 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 |
+-------+-------+-------+

Writing to an xlsx file

Here is the sample code:

>>> sheet.save_as("another_file.xlsx")

Writing to a StringIO instance

You need to pass a StringIO instance to Writer:

>>> data = [
...     [1, 2, 3],
...     [4, 5, 6]
... ]
>>> io = StringIO()
>>> sheet = pe.Sheet(data)
>>> io = sheet.save_to_memory("xlsx", io)
>>> # then do something with io
>>> # In reality, you might give it to your http response
>>> # object for downloading

Developer guide

Development steps for code changes

  1. git clone https://github.com/pyexcel/pyexcel-xlsxw.git
  2. cd pyexcel-xlsxw
  3. pip install -r rnd_requirements.txt # if such a file exists
  4. pip install -r requirements.txt
  5. pip install -r tests/requirements.txt

In order to update test environment, and documentation, additional setps are required:

  1. pip install moban
  2. git clone https://github.com/pyexcel/pyexcel-commons.git
  3. make your changes in .moban.d directory, then issue command moban

What is 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.

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.

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 test

On Windows systems, please issue this command:

> test.bat
