# VisiData v0.95 [![CircleCI](https://circleci.com/gh/saulpw/visidata/tree/stable.svg?style=svg)](https://circleci.com/gh/saulpw/visidata/tree/stable)

A terminal interface for exploring and arranging tabular data

<a href=”https://github.com/saulpw/visidata/blob/develop/docs/tours.rst”>![VisiData silent demo](docs/img/birdsdiet_bymass.gif)</a>

A few interesting commands:

  • Shift-F pushes a frequency analysis of the current column
  • = creates a new column from the given Python expression (use column names to refer to their contents)
  • ; creates new columns from the match groups of the given regex

# Getting Started

## Install VisiData

### from pypi (stable branch)

` $ pip3 install visidata `

### or clone from git

` $ git clone http://github.com/saulpw/visidata.git $ cd visidata $ pip install -r requirements.txt $ python setup.py install `

### Dependencies

  • Python 3.3+
  • h5py and numpy (if opening .hdf5 files)

Remember to install the Python3 versions of these packages with e.g. `pip3`

## Run VisiData

If installed via pip3, vd should launch without issue.

` $ vd [<options>] [<inputs> ...] `

If no inputs are given, vd opens the current directory. Unknown filetypes are by default viewed with a text browser.

If installed via git clone, first set up some environment variables (on terminal):

` $ export PYTHONPATH=<visidata_dir>:$PYTHONPATH $ export PATH=<visidata_dir>/bin:$PATH `

Further documentation is available at [readthedocs](https://visidata.readthedocs.io/).

## Contributing

VisiData was created by Saul Pwanson <vd@saul.pw>.

VisiData needs lots of usage and testing to help it become useful and reliable. If you use VisiData, I would love it if you would send me a screencast! Maybe there is an easy way to improve the tool for both of us.

Also please create a GitHub issue if anything doesn’t appear to be working right. If you get an unexpected error, please include the full stack trace that you get with Ctrl-e.

### Branch structure

Visidata has two main branches: * [stable](https://github.com/saulpw/visidata/tree/stable) has the last known good version of VisiData (which should be on pypi). * [develop](https://github.com/saulpw/visidata/tree/develop) has the most up-to-date version of VisiData (which will eventually be merged to stable).

If you wish to contribute, please fork from [develop](https://github.com/saulpw/visidata/tree/develop) and submit a [pull request](https://github.com/saulpw/visidata/pulls) against it.

A developer’s guide can be found [here](http://visidata.readthedocs.io/en/stable/architecture.html).
