Description(s):
by Jonathan Karr (6 months ago)

ObjTables is a toolkit which makes it easy to work with complex datasets by combining spreadsheets (e.g., Excel workbooks) with schemas (classes, their attributes, the type of each attribute, and the possible relationships between instances of classes), and an object-relational mapping system (similar to Active Record, Doctrine, Django, Hibernate, Propel, SQLAlchemy, etc.).

Together, ObjTables makes it easy to create datasets that are both human and machine-readable which can be easily shared with others, compared with similar datasets, re-used for additional analyses, and composed into more comprehensive datasets.

ObjTables consists of a format for describing schemas for spreadsheets; numerous data types for scientific data; a syntax for indicating the class and attribute represented by each table and column in a spreadsheet; and software for using schemas to rigorously validate, merge, split, compare, and revision datasets; and software for using schemas to parse datasets into objects for further analysis in programming languages such as Python.

ObjTables is ideal for supplementary materials of journal article, as well as for emerging domains which need to quickly build new formats for new types of data and associated software with minimal effort.
