The library is composed by:

  • A common interface to tabular data (the Table class)
  • A set of plugins to populate Table objects from formats like CSV, XLS, XLSX, HTML and XPath, Parquet, PDF, TXT, JSON, SQLite;
  • A set of common fields (such as BoolField, IntegerField) which know exactly how to serialize and deserialize data for each object type you'll get
  • A set of utilities (such as field type recognition) to help working with tabular data
  • A command-line interface so you can have easy access to the most used features: convert between formats, sum, join and sort tables.
