Write to a cross-platform Excel binary file.
This library is converted from Spreadsheet::WriteExcel module of Perl. search.cpan.org/~jmcnamara/Spreadsheet-WriteExcel-2.38/
Original description is below:
The Spreadsheet::WriteExcel module can be used to create a cross- platform Excel binary file. Multiple worksheets can be added to a workbook and formatting can be applied to cells. Text, numbers, formulas, hyperlinks, images and charts can be written to the cells. TThe Excel file produced by this module is compatible with 97, 2000, 2002, 2003 and 2007. The module will work on the majority of Windows, UNIX and Macintosh platforms. Generated files are also compatible with the spreadsheet applications Gnumeric and OpenOffice.org. This module cannot be used to read an Excel file.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install writeexcel
See Reference writeexcel.web.fc2.com/ . You must save source file in UTF8, and run ruby with -Ku option or set $KCODE='u' in Ruby 1.8.
require 'writeexcel' # Create a new Excel Workbook workbook = WriteExcel.new('ruby.xls') # Add worksheet(s) worksheet = workbook.add_worksheet worksheet2 = workbook.add_worksheet # Add and define a format format = workbook.add_format format.set_bold format.set_color('red') format.set_align('right') # write a formatted and unformatted string. worksheet.write(1, 1, 'Hi Excel.', format) # cell B2 worksheet.write(2, 1, 'Hi Excel.') # cell B3 # write a number and formula using A1 notation worksheet.write('B4', 3.14159) worksheet.write('B5', '=SIN(B4/4)') # write to file workbook.close
Difference with Perl module
accept default format parameter such as new('foo.xls', :font => 'Roman', :size => 12)
Unary minus is supported, but it will be stored as '-1*'. ex) '=-1' -> '=-1*1', '=-SIN(PI()/2)' => '=-1*SIN(PI()/2)'
Worksheet.write(row, col, token, format)
if token.kind_of?(Numeric) then call write_number, if token.kind_of?(String) then not call write_number().
ignore. if write 0001, use string such as write(1,2, '0001')
use test-unit gem instead of test/unit.
put formula parsers classes in a module to avoid namespace conflicts. (thanks Kevin)
