openpyxl is a Python library to read/write Excel 2010 xlsx/xlsm/xltx/xltm files.
It was born from lack of existing library to read/write natively from Python the Office Open XML format.
All kudos to the PHPExcel team as openpyxl was initially based on PHPExcel.
By default openpyxl does not guard against quadratic blowup or billion laughs xml attacks. To guard against these attacks install defusedxml.

from openpyxl import Workbook wb = Workbook() # grab the active worksheet ws = wb.active # Data can be assigned directly to cells ws['A1'] = 42 # Rows can also be appended ws.append([1, 2, 3]) # Python types will automatically be converted import datetime ws['A2'] = datetime.datetime.now() # Save the file wb.save("sample.xlsx")
