#3920 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Integrated spreadsheet functionality would be a huge plus.

This is just a wish-list issue.

Projects like TrimSpreadsheet and wikiCalc show that integrating spreadsheet capability into a wiki is possible.

That is, it should be possible to edit a table even without entering page-edit mode. Right now, the only way to edit a table in Trac—-it seems—-is to enter page-edit mode, move the cursor to the right place, delete the old contents, and add new contents. Trac's table capability is excellent, and the markup is efficient, but editing a table is very awkward when the table is large. Even if there were no ability to do numeric calculation and relative cell references, just being able to edit a table in a cell-edit mode (instead of page-edit mode) would be a huge win.

Right now, I am using Trac for an internal project at my company, and our software process requires the use of a spreadsheet to track certain aspects of the project. At present, I have a link from my Trac wiki to an (OpenOffice.org-exported) HTML version of the spreadsheet in subversion. Much cooler would be for me to implement the spreadsheet directly in the wiki.

Replying to anonymous:

Agreed, this is a candidate for a Trac plugin.

About table: yeah, support for tables in Trac is pretty weak. You can nevertheless use RestructuredText (docutils) to create tables.

There is the TracWysiwyg? plugin now. Helps with wiki table editing.
