Welcome to csvmedkit’s documentation!

The unofficial extended family of csvkit, i.e. even more tools for command-line data parsing and wrangling


  1. How is this related to wireservice/csvkit?
  1. csvmedkit is an extension of csvkit (and thus has csvkit and agate as dependencies) that adds a bunch of new command-line utilities for data-wrangling convenience.
  1. What are the point of these new utilities?
  1. As useful as core csvkit is, there are still a bunch of common data-wrangling tasks that are cumbersome to perform even when the data is in a spreadsheet or SQL database. “Cumbersome”, in the sense that you’d basically have to write a custom Python script to do them.
