This works with Rails 2.3 and the rails-2.3 branch of ActiveScaffold. Enhancements: The following exports are supported: Excel Enhanced XML To File (uses XSL Stylesheet) Enhanced XML Raw XML CSV Stylesheet (XSL stylesheet. Used by Enhanced XML To File) Raw XML is a rails "to_xml" which dumps the db/model data i.e. just the ids for any associations. All others export what you see in the list i.e. real association data. For plural associations, all records are output - not just the first 3 like you see in an AS list. Gems required: fastercsv surpass (for Excel export) Features from http://code.google.com/p/activescaffoldexport/wiki/Features Introduction Active Scaffold plugin with some configuration options and a FasterCSV implementation (which can be easily overridden) Details Actual CSV export implementation can be easily overridden via a template override 1. Built in CSV export implementation uses FasterCSV (must be installed via GEM) 2. Several customization options available at both global and controller config layer including: * show_form - skip customization form and just automatically export from action link * allow_full_download - allow user to only export the current page or all AR items * force_quotes - Always wrap all fields in quotes (using FCSV feature) * default_full_download - Whether page or full download is the default option in show_export form * default_delimiter - defaults to , (different from the prior code's default of ;) * default_skip_header - default for the omit header form option * default_deselected_columns - list of columns that the user can export but aren't selected by default Usage Add the export action to your controller: active_scaffold :people do |c| c.actions.add :export c.export.columns = [ :id, :name, :birth_date ] c.export.default_deselected_columns = [ :birth_date ] c.export.default_delimiter = ';' c.export.force_quotes = true end or for all controllers: class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base ActiveScaffold.set_defaults do |config| config.actions.add :export end end The output filename is controller_date.format e.g. people_2010-04-14.csv You can customize this by overriding #export_file (everything except stylesheets) or #export_file_name(:format) in your controller e.g. def export_file "output" end would give you output.csv, output.xls, etc (but keep the stylesheet as people.xsl) You can override the background color in the stylesheet by overriding #bgcolor e.g def bgcolor "#AADDAA" end I have renamed the old activescaffoldexport plugin to follow the same pattern as the other ActiveScaffold related plugins.
