Maybe gnumeric may be an option, too.
Pyspread should run fine on the Mac. However, Macs are not officially
supported because there are no testers for OSX, yet.
Please note that pyspread does not translate Excel "xls" files into
Python but only imports cell contents and formatting via xlrd. If you
use Excel cell functions or VBA then you would have to migrate your
code to Python.
