Viewer for Microsoft Excel XLST files
This hack allows uploaded Excel files on the Wiki or in tickets to be viewed in the web browser as a simple HTML table. It allows everybody to easilly view the files without Downlading and saving the Excel files and without even requiring Microsoft Excel. It is derived from the ExcelViewerPlugin hack but depends upon the openpyxl library (easy_install xlrd). After installing add
to the mime_map property in trac.ini to tell Trac which types of file work with the plugin.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.
Download the zipped source from [download:excelxlstviewerplugin here].
Upload an Excel document from an up-to-date version of Microsoft Excel as an attachment. As long as it is in the new xlst format the plugin will work. For older files use ExcelViewerPlugin. If it doesn't work confirm xlrd is installed correctly by running python and entering "import xlrd". You should see no error. Also ensure that mime_map is set properly as documented above.
