    simplegdocserver

    Simple REST Server that emulates Google Docs interface using your Excel files. (currently read-only)

    Installation

    (requires node + npm)

    npm install -g simplegdocserver
    

    Usage

    To host files from the current directory, on port 7263:

    $ simplegdocserver
    

    To use a different port, either set the PORT environment variable or pass it as an argument:

    $ simplegdocserver 8000
    

    To host from a different directory, pass a third argument or set the BASE_DIR environment variable:

    $ simplegdocserver 8000 ./test_files
    

    Interaction with Client Libraries

    Using tabletop, just set the endpoint:

       Tabletop.init( {
         endpoint:"http://localhost:7263", // <-- adjust based on server settings 
         key: "myfile.xls", // <-- the actual filename
         ...
       });
    

    The demo directory includes a demo using mapsheet to annotate a map.

    Notes

    there is no caching. This is intentional: you can quickly change your data in Excel and simplegdocserver will immediately see the change.
