Viewer for Microsoft Excel XLST files


This plugin allows uploaded Excel files on the Wiki or in tickets to be viewed in the web browser as a HTML table. It allows users to easily view the files without downloading and saving the Excel files and without even requiring Microsoft Excel.

As a use case, 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. If it doesn't work, then verify that openpyxl is installed correctly by running Python and entering "import openpyxl". You should see no error. Also ensure that mime_map is set properly as documented in the Installation steps.

This plugin depends on the openpyxl library, which itself is MIT/Expat licensed.
