Only the latest LTS variant is supported. Install NodeJs: # Description [//]: #@corifeus-header:end Utility to convert json to an excel file, based on [Node-Excel-Export]( using a worker thread by not blocking the NodeJs event loop using `async` functions and options. This is a totally fork of the [json2xls](, but the XLSX constructing can be CPU intensive so we are offloading the XLSX constructing using a worker thread. Of course, when using a worker thread, the execution is about 20-25ms longer, then when we are in the event loop, so the worker thread is valid when we are generating a big dataset. # Installation ```bash npm install p3x-json2xls-worker-thread ``` # Usage Use to save as file: ```js const json2xls = require('p3x-json2xls-worker-thread') const fs = require('fs').promises const json = { foo: 'bar', qux: 'moo', poo: 123, stux: new Date() } const executAsync = async() => { try { // let nodeExcelOptions = undefined /* The following options are supported: - style: a styles xml file, see <> - fields: either an array or map containing field configuration: - array: a list of names of fields to be exported, in that order - object: a map of names of fields to be exported and the types of those fields. Supported types are 'number','string','bool' */ if (ifSomeConditionIsTrue) { nodeExcelOptions = { fields: ['poo'] } } const options = { output: 'binary' /* default */ || 'base64', nodeExcel: nodeExcelOptions } const xlsBinary = await json2xls(json, options) await fs.writeFile('data.xlsx', xlsBinary, 'binary'); } catch(e) { // handle error console.error(e) } } executAsync() ``` Or use as express middleware. It adds a convenience `xls` method to the response object to immediately output an excel as download. ```js const json2xls = require('p3x-json2xls-worker-thread') const jsonArr = [{ foo: 'bar', qux: 'moo', poo: 123, stux: new Date() }, { foo: 'bar', qux: 'moo', poo: 345, stux: new Date() }]; app.use(json2xls.middleware); app.get('/',function(req, res) { res.xls('data.xlsx', jsonArr); }); ``` It is possible to block the event loop by using the `sync` function eg.: ```js const json2xls = require('p3x-json2xls-worker-thread') const json = { foo: 'bar', qux: 'moo', poo: 123, stux: new Date() } const xlsBinary = json2xls.sync(json, { output: 'base64' // can be binary as well, just sugar... }) console.log(xlsBinary) ``` [//]: #@corifeus-footer --- 🙏 This is an open-source project.

Possible, this server, rarely, is down, please, hang on for 15-30 minutes and the server will be back up. All my domains ([]( and []( could have minor errors, since I am developing in my free time. However, it is usually stable. **Note about versioning:** Versions are cut in Major.Minor.Patch schema. Major is always the current year. Minor is either 4 (January - June) or 10 (July - December). Patch is incremental by every build.
