aka NePaLi (Nessus Parser Lite) nepali is a python script that will parse Nessus scan results and then export the results into a spreadsheet format (Microsoft Excel ".xlsx"). nepali parses Nessus XML output files (by default files are saved with ".nessus" extension).


nepali uses the following public modules:

  • xml.etree.ElementTree
  • xlsxwriter
  • argparse
  • os
  • datetime
  • dateparser
  • decimal
  • traceback
  • sys
  • ipaddress
  • re


The following command line options are supported:

  • "-d " : location of Nessus output files to be parsed and output will be saved
  • "-f " : name of the Nessus output file to be parsed (current directory is assumed for location)
  • "-i f" : instructs nepali to not include informational (severity=0) plugins in output; "-i false" works too
  • "-o <filename_base>" : base of the filename for the output file; "__parsed__(<YYYYMMDD_HHMM>).xlsx" is added automatically
