Overview

django-excel-response

This is http://djangosnippets.org/snippets/1151/ uploaded to pypi. Author is Tarken.

A subclass of HttpResponse which will transform a QuerySet, or sequence of sequences, into either an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file formatted for Excel, depending on the amount of data. All of this is done in-memory and on-the-fly, with no disk writes, thanks to the StringIO library.

pip install django-excel-response xlwt

Usage

from excel_response import ExcelResponse

def excelview(request):
    objs = SomeModel.objects.all()
    return ExcelResponse(objs)
