Elixir/Erlang library recommendation for read/write excel file

I’ve a excel file that’s looks like a template and just fill data into a cell in the file. So i just want to know that do you have any recommended Elixir or Erlang for read and write an excel file?

I don’t have a specific recommendation for you, but when looking for Elixir/Erlang libraries etc., hex.pm is a good place to start.

Doing a search for excel brings back 12 results with xlsxir being the most popular and looks like it can probably do what you need.

Thanks for all you guys for suggestions. :slight_smile:

After I research for a while, the excel libraries in hexpm today have support either read or write excel file, not both. That looks like I need to have extra work to support both sides.

Excelizer seems to support writing and reading, but I’m not sure if it’s something you’d want. It has hardly any downloads and it’s actually a wrapper around a Go library.
