As a self-taught programmer, I sometimes feel a bit uneasy about the code I write. Sure, it may work, but there’s probably a more efficient and more elegant way to do it. These doubts notwithstanding, I’ve just published my first Python package: limepy.
Its purpose is simple: it helps you process and summarise LimeSurvey data. LimeSurvey is a survey tool, somewhat similar to Surveymonkey. It’s different in that it’s open source, and probably more versatile.
If you download survey data as a csv, the answers to question types such as multiple choice questions or blocks of questions (‘arrays’) will be spread out over multiple columns. One task of limepy is to make sure all the data for a specific item end up in one table.
Limepy will also help you with a number of other tasks, like downloading survey data, creating a codebook, printing answers to open-ended questions and printing the answers of an individual respondent.
