Bug#811299: ITP: gtabview -- simple graphical tabular data viewer

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Yuri D'Elia" <wavexx@thregr.org>

* Package name    : gtabview
  Version         : 0.6
  Upstream Author : Yuri D'Elia <wavexx@thregr.org>
* URL             : https://github.com/wavexx/gtabview
* License         : MIT
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : simple graphical tabular data viewer

Simple graphical tabular data viewer that can be used both stand-alone and as a
Python module for various files and Python/Pandas/NumPy data structures.


There are currently very few alternatives to gtabview 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
gtabview allows to just view a tabular text file easily.

I'm also packaging "tabview" (see ITP #811294), which is the curses analogue.

gtabview 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 gtabview
heavily within emacs and the scipy stack.

I'm planning to maintain this package in the python-modules team.
