Last week I needed to generate a report in the format of an ODF
couldn’t find a suitable Ruby library for outputing ODF. There is
called RubyODF (at http://rubyforge.org/projects/rubyodf/ ), but it is
only of reading documents, not writing them.
After much searching I ended up writing my own library. For lack of a
name (and creativity), I called it rODF. It is not available as a gem
the code is available in GitHub at
I did already use this library successfully to generate some
spreadsheets and it
pretty much works (if you need to do exactly what I needed, anyway). The
read correctly in OpenOffice.org and KOffice, but I don’t think it is
mass consumption yet.
I thought I would share this to find out if there is already another
for this problem in Ruby that I wasn’t able to find or if I should go on
