ooxml is a Python interface for working with OOXML files such as xlsx, docx, pptx.
For now only reading xlsx works.
Here's how to use it to read xlsx file:
>>> from ooxml.spreadsheet import Spreadsheet
>>> workbook=Spreadsheet('book1.xlsx') #read in book1.xlsx
['Sheet1', 'Sheet3', 'Sheet2']
>>> sheet1 = workbook.sheet(1) #index start from 1, not 0
>>> row1 = sheet1.row(1) #you can get a row
< spreadsheet.Workrow object at 0xb7a8898c >
>>> row1.cell(1).value #access a cell value in a row
>>> sheet1.cell(2,1).value #access by sheet.cell(x,y), x is row, y is column
>>> sheet2 = workbook.sheet('Sheet2') #use name instead of index to get a sheet
>>> cell = sheet2.cell(5,5)
>>> sheet2.save_csv('my.csv') #save content to csv
Writing xlsx, reading/writing docx, pptx will be added later.
