Python TableFu

TableFu is a tool for manipulating, filtering and otherwise managing tabular data in Python. It started as a port of ProPublica's TableFu (written in Ruby) but has been updated to include its own features.

Going forward, the project's goal is to create something akin to an ORM for spreadsheets.


  • add functional programming methods: map, max, min, etc
  • better sorting
  • serialize to common formats: JSON, CSV, in addition to HTML
  • add the ability to bolt on persistent storage (requires serialization)
