Convert excel files following a particular schema into sqlite database files.

Project description

xls2db is a python program that takes an excel spreadsheet following a certain schema into an sqlite database that can be opened using python’s sqlite3 module. It can also be used as a module.


Because fuck you, that’s why.

But seriously: I was getting sick of doing data entry for this toy project of mine using cursor.execute()’s, so I figured I’d try entering the data into an excel spreadsheet, converting it into the db, and then manipulating it from there. Crazy, I know.


As a script:

xls2db infile.xls outfile.db

As a module:

from xls2db import xls2db
xls2db("infile.xls", "outfile.db")
