Description : curses command-line CSV and list (tabular data) viewer
tabview is both a minimal, stand-alone curses command-line CSV/tabular-data
viewer and a Python module that can be used to view basic Python types directly
in an interactive spreadsheet.
The curses interface offers VIM-like keyboard bindings, sorting and full-text
There are currently very few alternatives to tabview in debian. I've used "sc"
and "teapot" (not in Debian) to the same extent, however both are complete
spreadsheet programs (with sc requiring an extra "import" step), whereas
tabview allows to just view a csv/tsv file easily.
tabview is both helpful stand-alone, but also works greatly when used in
combination with ipython or any interactive python session, allowing one to
browse through a large data table visually. To this extent, I'm using tabview
heavily with the scipy stack.
I'm planning to maintain this package in the python-modules team.
