A pyramid extension that provides one application programming interface to read and write data in different excel file formats
pyramid-excel is based on pyexcel and makes it easy to consume/produce information stored in excel files over HTTP protocol as well as on file system. 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 Pyramid based web development, instead of file formats.
The idea originated from the problem of the illiteracy of excel file formats of non-technical office workers: such as office assistant, human resource administrator. There is nothing with the un-deniable fact that some people do not know the difference among various excel formats. It becomes usability problem to those people when a web service cannot parse the excel file that they saved using Microsoft Excel. Instead of training those people about file formats, this library helps web developers to handle most of the excel file formats by unifying the programming interface to most of the excel readers and writers.
The highlighted features are:
|Plugins||Supported file formats|
|pyexcel-xls||xls, xlsx(r), xlsm(r)|
|pyexcel-ods3||ods (python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4)|
|pyexcel-ods||ods (python 2.6, 2.7)|
|pyexcel-text||(write only)json, rst, mediawiki, latex, grid, pipe, orgtbl, plain simple|
This library makes infomation processing involving various excel files as easy as processing array, dictionary when processing file upload/download, data import into and export from SQL databases, information analysis and persistence. It uses pyexcel and its plugins:
Fonts, colors and charts are not supported.
You can install it via pip:
$ pip install pyramid-excel
or clone it and install it:
$ git clone http://github.com/pyexcel/pyramid-excel.git $ cd pyramid-excel $ python setup.py install
Once the pyramid_excel is installed, you must use the config.include mechanism to include it into your Pyramid project’s configuration:
config = Configurator(.....) config.include('pyramid_excel')
Alternately, you may activate the extension by changing your application’s .ini file by adding it to the pyramid.includes list:
pyramid.includes = pyramid_excel
