< Kexi | Plugins | Reports Design document. Details: Started: Jstaniek (talk) 11:07, 10 August 2015 (UTC) Wish #351150 Back this feature at  Target: 2.9.7 Status: UNASSIGNED Add command line (CLI) support for exporting Kexi Reports. General command line schema: kexi --export report:NAME [--format=FORMAT] [--overwrite] [--open-after-export] [--output=FILE] project.kexi Where: NAME - report name (not caption), required FORMAT: One of PDF, ODT, ODS, HTML, OLDHTML. Case-insensitive. The default format is PDF ODT means OpenDocument Text (available is Kexi has support for handling this format installed) ODS means OpenDocument Sheet (available is Kexi has support for handling this format installed) HTML means HTML web page with use of CSS and DIV elements OLDHTML means a traditional HTML web page with use of TABLE elements --overwrite - if the destination file exists, overwrite it; off by default --open-after-export - open associated file viewer after a successful export, e.g. for HTML web browser is used FILE - output file If not specified, NAME.EXTENSION is used, where NAME is the report name and EXTENSION is an extension depending on the format, e.g. pdf for the PDF format Use "-" for standard output, useful for using in scripts; use wit hcare when multiple reports are listed in --export because the output will be concatenated Export will fail if FILE is specified and multiple reports are listed in --export project.kexi - actual project to export from Requirements Do not require any interaction Support sane defaults TODOs Nice to have: support export of multiple reports in one go by specifying, e.g. --export report:NAME1,NAME2,.... Nice to have: support regular expressions for NAME, e.g. --export "report:.*" for all reports or --export "report:a.*z" for reports with name starting with "a" and ending with "z" Note that " " should be added in the argument because otherwise * will be expanded by the shell.
