Spreadsheet

TypeScript/javascript spreadsheet.

Usage

Install

npm install js-spreadsheet

Examples

Using a Sheet

var Sheet = require("js-spreadsheet").Sheet;
var sheet = new Sheet();
sheet.setCell("A1", "10");
sheet.setCell("A2", "14");
sheet.setCell("A4", "10e2");
sheet.setCell("A5", "99.1");
sheet.setCell("B1", "=SUM(A1:A5)");
sheet.getCell("B1").getValue(); // returns: 1123.1

Using Formulas Directly

var Formulas = require("js-spreadsheet").AllFormulas;
Formulas.SUM(1, 2, 3, [4, 5, 6], "7"); // returns: 28

For a full list of formulas, see DOCS.md

Nested Formulas

sheet.setCell('A1', '=SIN(PI() / 2)')
sheet.getCell("A1").getValue(); // returns: 1

Date Conversion

sheet.setCell('A1', '=DATEDIF("1992-6-19", "1996-6-19", "Y")')
sheet.getCell("A1").getValue(); // returns: 4

Number Parsing

sheet.setCell('A1', '="10e1" + 44');
sheet.getCell("A1").getValue(); // returns: 144
 
sheet.setCell('A2', '="1,000,000" + 1');
sheet.getCell("A2").getValue(); // returns: 1000001
 
sheet.setCell('A3', '="-$10.00" + 0');
sheet.getCell("A3").getValue(); // returns: -10
 
sheet.setCell('A4', '=10% + 1');
sheet.getCell("A4").getValue(); // returns: 1.1
 
sheet.setCell('A5', '= 2 ^ 10');
sheet.getCell("A5").getValue(); // returns: 1024

Ranges

In MS Excel, and Google Spreadsheets, literal ranges are denoted with opening and closing curly-brackets. E.g. "{1, 2, 3}". In this implementation however, literal ranges are denoted with opening and closing brackets. E.g. "[1, 2, 3]".

// OK
sheet.setCell('A1', '=SUM([1, 2, 3])');
// NOT OK
sheet.setCell('A1', '=SUM({1, 2, 3})');

Docs

See DOCS.md for full list and documentation of all formulas available.

Contributing

When adding a formula, or fixing a bug please follow the commit message format:

[BUG_FEATURE_FILE_OR_COMPONENT] short description here of issue and fix

If you're adding a new formula, before you submit a pull request or push ensure that:

  1. The formula is tested inside the proper category file in tests/Formulas.
  2. Make sure the formula is exported, and imported/exported in AllFormulas.ts.
  3. The formula tests for reference errors, N/A errors, value errors for each input.
  4. That the formula is tested for parsing inside SheetFormulaTest.ts.
  5. Run tests with npm run test.
  6. Build with npm run build.
  7. Build DOCS.md with npm run docs.

Why?

Near the end of 2016 I began to ask myself why I didn't know more about MS Excel and Google Spreadsheets. Why didn't I know more about the most popular programing language in the world? I began to reverse engineer Google Spreadsheets in particular, gaining a better understanding along the way.

I chose TypeScript because, coming from Java, it is really nice to be able to see type errors, and catch them. I also just enjoy getting specific with my return types, even if the specifications for a spreadsheet treat type flexibly.

For the formula documentation, I tried to be at least -- if not more -- thorough as Google Spreadsheets.

This is largely a re-write of Handsontable's https://github.com/handsontable/ruleJS, and https://github.com/sutoiku/formula.js/. The parser was derived from Handsontable's, and many of the formulas were created with FormulaJS's formulas as a reference point.
