A wrapper library to read, manipulate and write data in different excel formats: csv, ods, xls, xlsx and xlsm.
pyexcel is a wrapper library to read, manipulate and write data in different excel formats: csv, ods, xls, xlsx and xlsm. Its mission is to let you focus on data itself and it deals with different file formats. ODS format support is provided by pyexcel-ods or pyexcel-ods3. Fonts, colors and charts are not supported.
It was created due to the lack of uniform programming interface to access data in different formats. A developer needs to use different methods of different libraries to read the same data in different excel formats, hence the resulting code is cluttered and unmaintainable.
All great work have done by odf, ezodf(2), xlrd and other individual developers. This library unites only the data access code.
You can install it via pip:
$ pip install pyexcel
or clone it and install it:
$ git clone http://github.com/chfw/pyexcel.git $ cd pyexcel $ python setup.py install
Open Document Spreadsheet(ods) Support
$ pip install pyexcel-ods
$ pip install pyexcel-ods3
In order to use them together with pyexcel, you need an extra import line in your code to activate it:
from pyexcel.ext import ods
from pyexcel.ext import ods3
No futher code is needed. pyexcel will automatically support ods after this import.
Here is the comparsion of two packages:
|package||python 2.6||python 2.7||python 3.3||python 3.4||lxml dependent|
Here is the test command:
pip install -r tests/requirements.txt make test
On Windows, please use:
Test coverage is shown in codecov.io . For more local test coverage, you can add –cover-html –cover-html-dir=your_file_directory to test.sh or test.bat
- If a zero was typed in a DATE formatted field in xls, you will get “01/01/1900”.
- If a zero was typed in a TIME formatted field in xls, you will get “00:00:00”.
Extension management code was copied from flask.
