Intro to Marmir: Spreadsheets on steroids
Marmir (https://github.com/brianray/mm) takes Python data structures and turns them into spreadsheets (think xlwt on steroids). This is a high level Intro to the project, current status, goals, and to solicit any contributions. This talk will look into how Marmir internals do things like: measure fonts to fit columns, preserve data types (dates, numbers), allow advanced look and feel customization of spreadsheets. Later down the road, I would like to have a separate talk on Marmir internals and how it may be customized to do things like, convert Django model data directly to spreadsheets, integrate with google spreadsheets.
