Description

This is a simple, no-fuss generator for OpenXML (aka XLSX) files. No formatting or styles included -- just raw content with a few basic datatypes supported. Produced output is tested to be compatible with:

  • Open Office 3.2 series (Linux, Mac, Windows)
  • Neo Office 3.2 series (Mac)
  • Microsoft Office 2007 (Windows)
  • Microsoft Office 2010 (Windows)
  • Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac (versions 12.2.5 or above)
  • Microsoft Excel Viewer (Windows)

iWork's Numbers does not appear to support the inline string storage model used by this gem. Apple may release a fix for this eventually, but for now, I have avoided the more common shared string table method as it cannot be implemented in linear time.

Sample

require 'simple_xlsx'

serializer = SimpleXlsx::Serializer.new("test.xlsx") do |doc|
  doc.add_sheet("People") do |sheet|
    sheet.add_row(%w{DoB Name Occupation})
    sheet.add_row([Date.parse("July 31, 1912"), 
                  "Milton Friedman", 
                  "Economist / Statistician"])
  end
end
