DataBaker – make gnarly spreadsheet content machine readable.
DataBaker is a Python library that helps you wrangle complex spreadsheets into clean, normalised data tables. DataBaker is built to integrate with Jupyter and Pandas. It allows users to iteratively build up intuitive recipes that describe the structure of a spreadsheet. These recipes translate the spreadsheet into flat tables of data that can be used by Pandas and other data analysis libraries or saved as CSVs. It’s on Github so take a look.
