Tablao

The easy way to write HTML tables

Get Tablao
for Mac


Tablao is a table editor that allows you to create HTML tables like you create tables in Excel.

You don’t need to write cumbersome HTML-tags, Markdown- or ASCII tables anymore. But unlike Excel, Tablao creates proper HTML tables. HTML tables created with Tablao are without any style information and very easy to use in your own HTML documents.

Features

Preview

Preview your table with simple styling. This styling gets not exported.

Autosave

Your table is automaticly saved when you close Tablao or the window looses focus.

Use HTML where needed

Use HTML code in your table cells to structure the content of your cells if needed.

Paste from other spreadsheets

Paste Data from Excel, Libre Office or Numbers.

Optional table header

Choose if you create HTML tables with or without header.

Cross platform

Tablao works on Linux, Mac OS and Windows.

Installation

Tablao is still in an early alpha stage. If you are interested to test tablao, I added installation instructions for all major platforms. If you encounter any problems or have suggestions, feel free to post them at Tablao’s issue tracker

Linux

I provide a Download for Ubuntu 16.04 and 17.04, that should work on most Linux platforms. If not install Python3, Qt5 (Version 5.7 or higher), Git and PyQt5 with your package manager. In a terminal execute the following steps:

INSTALL HY

pip3 install hy

INSTALL TABLAO

git clone https://github.com/rockiger/tablao.git

START TABLAO

cd tablao/dist
python tablao.py

MacOS

Unfortunately, I was not able to package Tablao for macOS. This is why I provide this installation instruction, that worked on my virtual machine. I hope I can provide Mac disk images in the future. From a terminal execute the following steps:

Install Homebrew

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Install PyQt5 and Python3

brew install pyqt

Install Git

brew install git

Install Hy

pip3 install hy

Install Tablao

git clone https://github.com/rockiger/tablao.git

Start Tablao

cd tablao/dist
python tablao.py

Windows

Unfortunately, I was not able to package Tablao for Window either. This is why I provide this installation instruction, that worked on my virtual machine. I hope I can provide am MSI in the future.

Install Qt5, Python3 and Git

The remaining steps are done in the Windows Powershell. So open a Powershell and execute the following steps:

Install PyQt5 and Hy

pip3 install pyqt5
pip3 install hy

Install Tablao

git clone https://github.com/rockiger/tablao.git

Start Tablao

cd tablao/dist
