Our paid plans give you direct support and additional features including 1-click installers, template-based reporting, and the ability to install Python on a Linux server/cloud with support for Google Sheets, Excel on the web, and Desktop Excel.
What Our Users Say
We use xlwings to automate the data feeds of one of our analytical spreadsheet tools, which saves us 1–2 days of tedious manual work every month. Data sources include REST APIs, CSV files via SFTP, and web scraping.
Jolanda Stadelmann, Founding Partner, zCapital
xlwings has saved me hundreds of hours in my current role. I replaced the VBA reporting with it and instead of taking 20–30 hours a month I can get the reports run in 6–7 hours.
Adam Wood, CFA, Analyst at a large U.S. custody bank

INTERACTION / AUTOMATION
Leverage Python's scientific stack for interactive data analysis using Jupyter Notebooks, NumPy, Pandas, scikit-learn etc. Or use xlwings to automate Excel reports with Python (Windows & Mac).
MACROS AND EXCEL TOOLS
Write Excel tools with Python instead of VBA and call your code directly from within Excel, e.g. via a button on the sheet. This also works great for prototyping web apps (Windows & Mac).
USER DEFINED FUNCTIONS
Write (array) UDFs in a breeze by taking advantage of all the functionality already available in libraries like NumPy and Pandas. Since v0.10, dynamic array formulas are supported (Windows only).
