#parse_options

Constructor Details

- (Package) initialize(options = {}) {|_self| ... }

Initializes your package

Examples:

Package.new :author => 'you!', :workbook => Workbook.new

Parameters:

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    A hash that you can use to specify the author and workbook for this package.

Options Hash (options):

  • :author (String)

    The author of the document

  • :created_at (Time)

    Timestamp in the document properties (defaults to current time).

  • :use_shared_strings (Boolean)

    This is passed to the workbook to specify that shared strings should be used when serializing the package.

Yields:

  • (_self)

  # moc.save
end

- (Boolean) serialize(output, confirm_valid = false)

Note:

A tremendous amount of effort has gone into ensuring that you cannot create invalid xlsx documents. confirm_valid should be used in the rare case that you cannot open the serialized file.

Serialize your workbook to disk as an xlsx document.

Examples:

# This is how easy it is to create a valid xlsx file. Of course you might want to add a sheet or two, and maybe some data, styles and charts.
# Take a look at the README for an example of how to do it!

#serialize to a file
p = Axlsx::Package.new
# ......add cool stuff to your workbook......
p.serialize("example.xlsx")

# Serialize to a stream
s = p.to_stream()
File.open('example_streamed.xlsx', 'w') { |f| f.write(s.read) }

Parameters:

  • output (String)

    The name of the file you want to serialize your package to

  • confirm_valid (Boolean) (defaults to: false)

    Validate the package prior to serialization.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

    False if confirm_valid and validation errors exist. True if the package was serialized

    write_parts(zip)
  end
  true
end

- (StringIO|Boolean) to_stream(confirm_valid = false)

Serialize your workbook to a StringIO instance

Parameters:

  • confirm_valid (Boolean) (defaults to: false)

    Validate the package prior to serialization.

Returns:

  • (StringIO|Boolean)

    False if confirm_valid and validation errors exist. rewound string IO if not.

- (Array) validate

Note:

This gem includes all schema from OfficeOpenXML-XMLSchema-Transitional.zip and OpenPackagingConventions-XMLSchema.zip as per ECMA-376, Third edition. opc schema require an internet connection to import remote schema from dublin core for dc, dcterms and xml namespaces. Those remote schema are included in this gem, and the original files have been altered to refer to the local versions.

If by chance you are able to creat a package that does not validate it indicates that the internal validation is not robust enough and needs to be improved. Please report your errors to the gem author.

Validate all parts of the package against xsd schema.

Examples:

# The following will output any error messages found in serialization.
p = Axlsx::Package.new
# ... code to create sheets, charts, styles etc.
p.validate.each { |error| puts error.message }

Returns:

  • (Array)

    An array of all validation errors found.

      if part[:doc].is_a? String
        errors.concat validate_single_doc(part[:schema], part[:doc])

      end
    end
  end
  errors

- (Workbook) workbook {|@workbook| ... }

Note:

As there are multiple ways to instantiate a workbook for the package, here are a few examples: # assign directly during package instanciation wb = Package.new(:workbook => Workbook.new).workbook

# get a fresh workbook automatically from the package wb = Pacakge.new().workbook # # set the workbook after creating the package wb = Package.new().workbook = Workbook.new

The workbook this package will serialize or validate.

Yields:

  • (@workbook)

Returns:

  • (Workbook)

    If no workbook instance has been assigned with this package a new Workbook instance is returned.

Raises:

  • ArgumentError if workbook parameter is not a Workbook instance.
