writing to excel with python and installing modules


Recommended Posts

I've come a fair way in python 3. I am having trouble installing modules on my mac. Poured hours into it and it's still not working, documentation on the internet that I have managed to find is vague at best. I've used pip and typed: sudo install XlsxWriter into the command line and got the following:


usage: install [-bCcpSsv] [-B suffix] [-f flags] [-g group] [-m mode]

[-o owner] file1 file2

install [-bCcpSsv] [-B suffix] [-f flags] [-g group] [-m mode]

[-o owner] file1 ... fileN directory

install -d [-v] [-g group] [-m mode] [-o owner] directory ...


Then back to another command prompt... is it ready to use?


I'm finding installing modules extremely frustrating


Update: I tried running a script and it said ImportError: No module named 'xlsxwriter'

Dunno worked fine for me on windows. I downloaded newest version of python inside is a folder called scripts with pip inside. On windows I had to copy the script to the main python folder with the python.exe file. Then I had to use command prompt


cd folder

python.exe pip.exe install XlsxWriter


and it ran fine. So maybe try downloading from github or something.
