A simple yet powerful DSL to generate Excel spreadsheets built on top of axlsx gem.
Why Lazy Wombat?
Axlsx is awesome and quite complex in usage. Often you need something simple and easy-to-use to generate an excel spreadsheet as easy, as you markup tables with HTML. Now you can.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install lazy-wombat
Basic sample: no styles, just content
LazyWombat::Xlsx.new do spreadsheet do row do cell 'Cyberdyne Systems' cell 'Model 101' cell 'The Terminator' end end end.save 'my_laziness.xlsx'
LazyWombat::Xlsx.new do cell 'Cyberdyne Systems' cell 'Model 101' cell 'The Terminator' end.save 'my_laziness.xlsx'
my_laziness.xlsx spreadsheet looks like this:
Since spreadsheet elements inheritance is alike
spreadsheet -> row -> cell, you can arbitrary omit every unnecessary
elder element of your spreadsheets.
Where is my HTML??
Oh yeah, I promised you
as you markup tables with HTML: there're logic aliases:
cell is, of course,
Thus here's our simplest example:
LazyWombat::Xlsx.new do table do tr do td 'Cyberdyne Systems' td 'Model 101' td 'The Terminator' end end end.save 'my_laziness.xlsx'
Additional options: spreadsheet names, rows and cells styles
By default spreadsheets are named as
Sheet 2, etc. It can be overwritten using
LazyWombat::Xlsx.new do spreadsheet name: 'My Laziness' do row style: :bold do cell 'Cyberdyne Systems' cell 'Model 101', style: :italic cell 'The Terminator' end end end.save 'my_laziness.xlsx'
