This part of the documentation covers the installation of Tablib. The first step to using any software package is getting it properly installed.

Installing Tablib

Distribute & Pip

Of course, the recommended way to install Tablib is with pip:

$ pip install tablib

You can also choose to install more dependencies to have more import/export formats available:

$ pip install "tablib[xlsx]"

Or all possible formats:

$ pip install "tablib[all]"

which is equivalent to:

$ pip install "tablib[html, pandas, ods, xls, xlsx, yaml]"

Download the Source

You can also install Tablib from source. The latest release (3.6) is available from GitHub.

Once you have a copy of the source, you can embed it in your Python package, or install it into your site-packages easily.

$ python install

To download the full source history from Git, see Source Control.

The latest version of Tablib will always be available here:

When a new version is available, upgrading is simple:

$ pip install tablib --upgrade

Now, go get a Quick Start.
