Report Assembler makes it easy to dynamically generate a textual report from data. You can insert data values into the report text, and you can change what gets included in the report using conditions.

For example, if you have data like this:

ZombieSpeedMPH: 4.5
IncubationPeriodDays: 2

Then you can write a report template like this:

Your local zombie variety moves at $$ZombieSpeedMPH mph.  If you get
bitten, you will turn into a zombie after $$IncubationPeriodDays
[[IncubationPeriodDays != 1]]days.[[IncubationPeriodDays == 1]]day.

Report Assembler takes your report template, works out the conditions and insertions, and gives you the completed report.

Insertions

Insertions start with two dollar signs, like this: $$DatumName. The dollar signs and the name after it will be replaced by the actual value of the data.

Conditions

Conditions are wrapped in double square brackets, like this: [[ZombieDeadliness > PirateDeadliness]]. Anything after a conditon will only be included in the final report if the conditon is true.

These are RA's conditions:

  • always is always true
  • never is never true
  • a == b is true if a and b are equal
  • a != b is true if a and b are not equal
  • a > b is true if a is greater than b
  • a >= b is true if a is greater than b or equal to b
  • a < b is true if a is less than b
  • a <= b is true if a is less than b or equal to b

Coming soon:

  • a <10< b is true if a is less than b by 10 or more
