Original post, before the extension was made public:
What if reports would be written directly to Excel files, without the need to export to .csv and manually copy the data, search for the correct .xlsx template file, paste the data and save the resulting .xslx as a new file, without accidentally overwriting the .xlsx that is the actual template?
Would that be useful?
I have a proof of concept ready and I am wondering if there is interest for such an extension. Right now:
- a template is nothing more than an excel file with an “input” sheet. Additionally, the template can have as many other sheets, images, charts, formulas, … as you would like.
- the first row of the input sheet defines what should be placed in the file. You can have this as PersistentId, Path (chain of persistent ids, for nesting), name, definition name, whether it is a group or component, … and all dynamic attribute values.
You can see a proof of concept here:
If you believe this seems useful to you, just let me know. If you believe it is not useful yet, but could be with some additional features, also, please feel free to let me know.
