Python module for converting a html table to a list of dictionaries.

Project Description

table2dicts

Python module for converting a html table to a list of dictionaries.

Installation

Installing from PyPI using pip:

$ pip install table2dicts

Installing from source:

$ python setup.py install

Usage

Give it some html with a table:

>>> table2dicts('''
...    <table>
...         <thead>
...             <tr><th>a</th><th>b</th><th>c</th></tr>
...         </thead>
...         <tbody>
...             <tr><td>1</td><td>2</td><td>3</td></tr>
...             <tr><td>4</td><td>5</td><td>6</td></tr>
...         </tbody>
...    </table>
... ''')
[OrderedDict([('a', '1'), ('b', '2'), ('c', '3')]), OrderedDict([('a', '4'), ('b', '5'), ('c', '6')])]

No thead or tbody, no problem:

>>> table2dicts('''
...    <table>
...        <tr><th>a</th><th>b</th><th>c</th></tr>
...        <tr><td>1</td><td>2</td><td>3</td></tr>
...        <tr><td>4</td><td>5</td><td>6</td></tr>
...    </table>
... ''')
[OrderedDict([('a', '1'), ('b', '2'), ('c', '3')]), OrderedDict([('a', '4'), ('b', '5'), ('c', '6')])]

When no th is present, the first row of td elements is used as a header:

>>> table2dicts('''
...    <table>
...        <tr><td>a</td><td>b</td><td>c</td></tr>
...        <tr><td>1</td><td>2</td><td>3</td></tr>
...        <tr><td>4</td><td>5</td><td>6</td></tr>
...    </table>
... ''')
[OrderedDict([('a', '1'), ('b', '2'), ('c', '3')]), OrderedDict([('a', '4'), ('b', '5'), ('c', '6')])]
