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