Read config from (optional) xlwings.conf in workbook's directory #772

codeape2 commented Nov 1, 2017

Current config system is:

  • values in xlwings.conf sheet can override ...
  • ... values from the user's ~/xlwings.conf file

The code in the PR modifies the config system:

  • values in xlwings.conf sheet can override...
  • ... values from xlwings.conf file in the workbook's folder can override ...
  • ... values from the user's ~/xlwings.conf file

I have a scenario where a xlwings-powered workbook should be deployed to a Citrix environment. This change makes it easier to deploy a package w/ the workbook on the environment. With this change, the automated deployment system can simply create a text file in the workbook's directory.

(contrast without the change: Either make sure all users have ~/xlwings.conf file in their home directories, or use COM automation to modify contents of the workbook's xlwings.conf)

Now that the add-in is version controlled using xltrail, how should PRs be submitted for VBA code? Should I create a PR with xlwings.xlam ?

And how abt. the _standalone.xlsm workbooks, are they handled by the build process?

We didnt' have any automatic merging in place pre xltrail neither, I will need to do some manual work. So your PR is still fine, apologies for the slowliness in merging.

the standalone files are built by so these are fine.
