The easiest way to install xlwings is via pip:
pip install xlwings
conda install xlwings
Alternatively, it can be installed from source. From within the
xlwings directory, execute:
python setup.py install
On Mac, the dependencies are automatically being handled if xlwings is installed with
pip. However, the Xcode command line tools need to be available. Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or later is required. The recommended Python distribution for Mac is Anaconda.
These packages are not required but highly recommended as they play very nicely with xlwings.
Python version support¶
xlwings runs on Python 2.6-2.7 and 3.1+
