Generating OOo-Calc charts with Ruby


#1

For a while I have been using Ruby to generate charts in Excel through
WIN32OLE, i.e. require ‘win32ole’. I am now wondering if something
similar can be achieved using OpenOffice.org Calc and Ruby. I can’t find
anything about this when googling, but I would be surprised if it isn’t
possible.

Since the OO document format is an XML dialect, it should be possible to
generate the files directly with e.g. REXML.
