What's breaking in 0.5.9

:meth:`pyexcel.Sheet.to_records` returns a generator instead of a list of dictionaries.

Migrate away from 0.4.3

get_{{file_type}}_stream functions from pyexcel.Sheet and pyexcel.Book were introduced since 0.4.3 but were removed since 0.4.4. Please be advised to use save_to_memory functions, Sheet.io.{{file_type}} or Book.io.{{file_type}}.

Migrate from 0.2.x to 0.3.0+

Filtering and formatting behavior of :class:`pyexcel.Sheet` are simplified. Soft filter and soft formatter are removed. Extra classes such as iterator, formatter, filter are removed.

Most of formatting tasks could be achieved using :meth:`~pyexcel.Sheet.format` and :meth:`~pyexcel.Sheet.map`. and Filtering with :meth:`~pyexcel.Sheet.filter`. Formatting and filtering on row and/or column can be found with :meth:`~pyexcel.sheets.row` and :meth:`~pyexcel.sheets.column`

1. Updated filter function

There is no alternative to replace the following code:

sheet.filter(pe.OddRowFilter())

You will need to remove odd rows by yourself:

>>> import pyexcel as pe
>>> data = [
...  ['1'],
...  ['2'],
...  ['3'],
... ]
>>> sheet = pe.Sheet(data)
>>> to_remove = []
>>> for index in sheet.row_range():
...     if index % 2 == 0:
...         to_remove.append(index)
>>> sheet.filter(row_indices=to_remove)
>>> sheet
pyexcel sheet:
+---+
| 2 |
+---+

Or, you could do this:

>>> data = [
...  ['1'],
...  ['2'],
...  ['3'],
... ]
>>> sheet = pe.Sheet(data)
>>> def odd_filter(row_index, _):
...    return row_index % 2 == 0
>>> del sheet.row[odd_filter]
>>> sheet
pyexcel sheet:
+---+
| 2 |
+---+

And the same applies to EvenRowFilter, OddColumnFilter, EvenColumnFilter.

2. Updated format function

2.1 Replacement of sheetformatter

The following formatting code:

sheet.apply_formatter(pe.sheets.formatters.SheetFormatter(int))

can be replaced by:

sheet.format(int)

2.2 Replacement of row formatters

The following code:

row_formatter = pe.sheets.formatters.RowFormatter([1, 2], str)
sheet.add_formatter(row_formatter)

can be replaced by:

sheet.row.format([1, 2], str)

2.3 Replacement of column formatters

The following code:

f = NamedColumnFormatter(["Column 1", "Column 3"], str)
sheet.apply_formatter(f)

can be replaced by:

sheet.column.format(["Column 1", "Column 3"], str)

Migrate from 0.2.1 to 0.2.2+

1. Explicit imports, no longer needed

Please forget about these statements:

import pyexcel.ext.xls
import pyexcel.ext.ods
import pyexcel.ext.xlsx

They are no longer needed. As long as you have pip-installed them, they will be auto-loaded. However, if you do not want some of the plugins, please use pip to uninstall them.

What if you have your code as it is? No harm but a few warnings shown:

Deprecated usage since v0.2.2! Explicit import is no longer required. pyexcel.ext.ods is auto imported.

2. Invalid environment marker: platform_python_implementation=="PyPy"

Yes, it is a surprise. Please upgrade setuptools in your environment:

pip install --upgrade setuptools

At the time of writing, setuptools (18.0.1) or setuptools-21.0.0-py2.py3-none-any.whl is installed on author's computer and worked.

3. How to keep both pyexcel-xls and pyexcel-xlsx

As in Issue 20, pyexcel-xls was used for xls and pyexcel-xlsx had to be used for xlsx. Both must co-exist due to requirements. The workaround would failed when auto-import are enabled in v0.2.2. Hence, user of pyexcel in this situation shall use 'library' parameter to all signature functions, to instruct pyexcel to use a named library for each function call.

4. pyexcel.get_io is no longer exposed

pyexcel.get_io was passed on from pyexcel-io. However, it is no longer exposed. Please use pyexcel_io.manager.RWManager.get_io if you have to.

You are likely to use pyexcel.get_io when you do :meth:`pyexcel.Sheet.save_to_memory` or :meth:`pyexcel.Book.save_to_memory` where you need to put in a io stream. But actually, with latest code, you could put in a None.

Migrate from 0.1.x to 0.2.x

1. "Writer" is gone, Please use save_as.

.. testcode::
   :hide:

    >>> import pyexcel

Here is a piece of legacy code:

w = pyexcel.Writer("afile.csv")
data=[['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h', 'i', 'j', 1.1, 1]]
w.write_array(table)
w.close()

The new code is:

>>> data=[['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h', 'i', 'j', 1.1, 1]]
>>> pyexcel.save_as(array=data, dest_file_name="afile.csv")
.. testcode::
   :hide:

    >>> import os
    >>> os.unlink("afile.csv")


Here is another piece of legacy code:

content = {
    "X": [1,2,3,4,5],
    "Y": [6,7,8,9,10],
    "Z": [11,12,13,14,15],
}
w = pyexcel.Writer("afile.csv")
w.write_dict(self.content)
w.close()

The new code is:

>>> content = {
...     "X": [1,2,3,4,5],
...     "Y": [6,7,8,9,10],
...     "Z": [11,12,13,14,15],
... }
>>> pyexcel.save_as(adict=content, dest_file_name="afile.csv")
.. testcode::
   :hide:

    >>> import os
    >>> os.unlink("afile.csv")

Here is yet another piece of legacy code:

data = [
    [1, 2, 3],
    [4, 5, 6]
]
io = StringIO()
w = pyexcel.Writer(("csv",io))
w.write_rows(data)
w.close()

The new code is:

>>> data = [
...     [1, 2, 3],
...     [4, 5, 6]
... ]
>>> io = pyexcel.save_as(dest_file_type='csv', array=data)
>>> for line in io.readlines():
...     print(line.rstrip())
1,2,3
4,5,6

2. "BookWriter" is gone. Please use save_book_as.

Here is a piece of legacy code:

import pyexcel
content = {
         "Sheet1": [[1, 1, 1, 1], [2, 2, 2, 2], [3, 3, 3, 3]],
         "Sheet2": [[4, 4, 4, 4], [5, 5, 5, 5], [6, 6, 6, 6]],
         "Sheet3": [[u'X', u'Y', u'Z'], [1, 4, 7], [2, 5, 8], [3, 6, 9]]
     }
w = pyexcel.BookWriter("afile.csv")
w.write_book_from_dict(content)
w.close()

The replacement code is:

>>> import pyexcel
>>> content = {
...          "Sheet1": [[1, 1, 1, 1], [2, 2, 2, 2], [3, 3, 3, 3]],
...          "Sheet2": [[4, 4, 4, 4], [5, 5, 5, 5], [6, 6, 6, 6]],
...          "Sheet3": [[u'X', u'Y', u'Z'], [1, 4, 7], [2, 5, 8], [3, 6, 9]]
...      }
>>> pyexcel.save_book_as(bookdict=content, dest_file_name="afile.csv")
.. testcode::
   :hide:

    >>> import os
    >>> os.unlink("afile__Sheet1__0.csv")
    >>> os.unlink("afile__Sheet2__1.csv")
    >>> os.unlink("afile__Sheet3__2.csv")
