No matter in which format your tabular data is: rows will import it, automatically detect types and give you high-level Python objects so you can start working with the data instead of trying to parse it. It is also locale-and-unicode aware. :)

Want to learn more? Read the documentation (or build and browse the docs locally by running make docs-serve after installing requirements-development.txt).


The easiest way to getting the hands dirty is install rows, using pip.

pip install rows

For another ways to instal refer to the Installation section documentation.
