Excel is a flutter and dart library for reading, creating and updating excel-sheets for XLSX files. #

Your Donations will help alot, Every $ counts, Thank you!! ❤️❤️ #

Road-map: #

  • ➕ Formulas and Calculations
  • 💾 Support Multiple Data type efficiently
  • 📈 Charts
  • 🌄 Add Pictures
  • 📰 Create Tables and style
  • 🔐 Encrypt and Decrypt excel on the go.
  • Many more features

Breaking changes from 3.x.x to 4.x.x #

  • Renamed Formula to FormulaCellValue
  • Cells value now represented by the sealed class CellValue instead of dynamic. Subtypes are TextCellValue FormulaCellValue, IntCellValue, DoubleCellValue, DateCellValue, TextCellValue, BoolCellValue, TimeCellValue, DateTimeCellValue and they allow for exhaustive switch (see Dart Docs (sealed class modifier)).

Breaking changes from 2.x.x to 3.x.x #

  • Renamed getColAutoFits() to getColumnAutoFits(), and changed return type to Map<int, bool> in Sheet
  • Renamed getColWidths() to getColumnWidths(), and changed return type to Map<int, double> in Sheet
  • Renamed getColAutoFit() to getColumnAutoFit() in Sheet
  • Renamed getColWidth() to getColumnWidth() in Sheet
  • Renamed setColAutoFit() to setColumnAutoFit() in Sheet
  • Renamed setColWidth() to setColumnWidth() in Sheet

Usage #

Read XLSX File #

var file = 'Path_to_pre_existing_Excel_File/excel_file.xlsx';
var bytes = File(file).readAsBytesSync();
var excel = Excel.decodeBytes(bytes);
for (var table in excel.tables.keys) {
  print(table); //sheet Name
  print(excel.tables[table].maxColumns);
  print(excel.tables[table].maxRows);
  for (var row in excel.tables[table].rows) {
    for (var cell in row) {
      print('cell ${cell.rowIndex}/${cell.columnIndex}');
      final value = cell.value;
      final numFormat = cell.cellStyle?.numberFormat ?? NumFormat.standard_0;
      switch(value){
        case null:
          print('  empty cell');
          print('  format: ${numFormat}');
        case TextCellValue():
          print('  text: ${value.value}');

leftBorder the left border of the cell (see below)
rightBorder the right border of the cell
topBorder the top border of the cell
bottomBorder the bottom border of the cell
diagonalBorder the diagonal "border" of the cell
diagonalBorderUp boolean value indicating if the diagonal "border" should be displayed on the up diagonal
diagonalBorderDown boolean value indicating if the diagonal "border" should be displayed on the down diagonal
numberFormat a subtype of NumFormat to style the CellValue displayed, use default formats such as NumFormat.standard_34 or create your own using CustomNumericNumFormat('#,##0.00 \\m\\²') CustomDateTimeNumFormat('m/d/yy h:mm') CustomTimeNumFormat('mm:ss')

Borders #

Borders are defined for each side (left, right, top, and bottom) of the cell. Both diagonals (up and down) share the same settings. A boolean value true must be set to either diagonalBorderUp or diagonalBorderDown (or both) to display the desired diagonal.

Each border must be a Border object. This object accepts two parameters : borderStyle to select one of the different supported styles and borderColorHex to change the border color.

The borderStyle must be a value from the enumerationBorderStyle:

  • BorderStyle.None
  • BorderStyle.DashDot
  • BorderStyle.DashDotDot
  • BorderStyle.Dashed
  • BorderStyle.Dotted
  • BorderStyle.Double
  • BorderStyle.Hair
  • BorderStyle.Medium
  • BorderStyle.MediumDashDot
  • BorderStyle.MediumDashDotDot
  • BorderStyle.MediumDashed
  • BorderStyle.SlantDashDot
  • BorderStyle.Thick
  • BorderStyle.Thin
/*
 *
 * Defines thin borders on the left and right of the cell, red thin border on the top
 * and blue medium border on the bottom.
 *
 */

CellStyle cellStyle = CellStyle(
  leftBorder: Border(borderStyle: BorderStyle.Thin),
  rightBorder: Border(borderStyle: BorderStyle.Thin),
  topBorder: Border(borderStyle: BorderStyle.Thin, borderColorHex: 'FFFF0000'),
  bottomBorder: Border(borderStyle: BorderStyle.Medium, borderColorHex: 'FF0000FF'),
);

Make sheet RTL #

/*
 * set rtl to true for making sheet to right-to-left
 * default value of rtl = false ( which means the fresh or default sheet is ltr )
 *
 */

var sheetObject = excel['SheetName'];
sheetObject.rtl = true;

Copy sheet contents to another sheet #

/*
 * excel.copy(String 'existingSheetName', String 'anotherSheetName');
 * existingSheetName should exist in excel.tables.keys in order to successfully copy
 * if anotherSheetName does not exist then it will be automatically created.
 *
 */

excel.copy('existingSheetName', 'anotherSheetName');

Rename sheet #

/*
 * excel.rename(String 'existingSheetName', String 'newSheetName');
 * existingSheetName should exist in excel.tables.keys in order to successfully rename
 *
 */

excel.rename('existingSheetName', 'newSheetName');

Delete sheet #

/*
 * excel.delete(String 'existingSheetName');
 * (existingSheetName should exist in excel.tables.keys) and (excel.tables.keys.length >= 2), in order to successfully delete.
 *
 */

excel.delete('existingSheetName');
/*
 * excel.link(String 'sheetName', Sheet sheetObject);
 *
 * Any operations performed on (object of 'sheetName') or sheetObject then the operation is performed on both.
 * if 'sheetName' does not exist then it will be automatically created and linked with the sheetObject's operation.
 *
 */

excel.link('sheetName', sheetObject);
/*
 * excel.unLink(String 'sheetName');
 * In order to successfully unLink the 'sheetName' then it must exist in excel.tables.keys
 *
 */

excel.unLink('sheetName');

// After calling the above function be sure to re-make a new reference of this.

Sheet unlinked_sheetObject = excel['sheetName'];

Merge Cells #

/*
 * sheetObject.merge(CellIndex starting_cell, CellIndex ending_cell, TextCellValue('customValue'));
 * sheetObject created by calling - // Sheet sheetObject = excel['SheetName'];
 * starting_cell and ending_cell can be identified with Cell Address or by 2D array having row and column Index;
 * customValue is optional
 */

sheetObject.merge(CellIndex.indexByString('A1'), CellIndex.indexByString('E4'), customValue: TextCellValue('Put this text after merge'));

Get Merged Cells List #

// Check which cells are merged

sheetObject.spannedItems.forEach((cells) {
  print('Merged:' + cells.toString());
});

Un-Merge Cells #

/*
 * sheetObject.unMerge(cell);
 * sheetObject created by calling - // Sheet sheetObject = excel['SheetName'];
 * cell should be identified with string only with an example as 'A1:E4'.
 * to check if 'A1:E4' is un-merged or not
 * call the method excel.getMergedCells(sheet); and verify that it is not present in it.
 */

sheetObject.unMerge('A1:E4');

Find and Replace #

/*
 * int replacedCount = sheetObject.findAndReplace(source, target);
 * sheetObject created by calling - // Sheet sheetObject = excel['SheetName'];
 * source is the string or ( User's Custom Pattern Matching RegExp )
 * target is the string which is put in cells in place of source
 *
 * it returns the number of replacements made
 */

int replacedCount = sheetObject.findAndReplace('Flutter', 'Google');

Insert Row Iterables #

/*
 * sheetObject.insertRowIterables(list-iterables, rowIndex, iterable-options?);
 * sheetObject created by calling - // Sheet sheetObject = excel['SheetName'];
 * list-iterables === list of iterables which has to be put in specific row
 * rowIndex === the row in which the iterables has to be put
 * Iterable options are optional
 */

/// It will put the list-iterables in the 8th index row
List<CellValue> dataList = [TextCellValue('Google'), TextCellValue('loves'), TextCellValue('Flutter'), TextCellValue('and'), TextCellValue('Flutter'), TextCellValue('loves'), TextCellValue('Excel')];

sheetObject.insertRowIterables(dataList, 8);

Iterable Options #

key description
startingColumn starting column index from which list-iterables should be started
overwriteMergedCells overwriteMergedCells is by-defalut set to true, when set to false it will stop over-write and will write only in unique cells

Append Row #

/*
 * sheetObject.appendRow(list-iterables);
 * sheetObject created by calling - // Sheet sheetObject = excel['SheetName'];
 * list-iterables === list of iterables
 */

sheetObject.appendRow([TextCellValue('Flutter'), TextCellValue('till'), TextCellValue('Eternity')]);

Get Default Opening Sheet #

/*
 * method which returns the name of the default sheet
 * excel.getDefaultSheet();
 */

var defaultSheet = excel.getDefaultSheet();
print('Default Sheet:' + defaultSheet.toString());

Set Default Opening Sheet #

/*
 * method which sets the name of the default sheet
 * returns bool if successful then true else false
 * excel.setDefaultSheet(sheet);
 * sheet = 'SheetName'
 */

var isSet = excel.setDefaultSheet(sheet);
if (isSet) {
  print('$sheet is set to default sheet.');
} else {
  print('Unable to set $sheet to default sheet.');
}

Saving #

On Flutter Web #

// when you are in flutter web then save() downloads the excel file.

// Call function save() to download the file
var fileBytes = excel.save(fileName: 'My_Excel_File_Name.xlsx');

On Android / iOS #

For getting saving directory on Android or iOS, Use: path_provider

var fileBytes = excel.save();
var directory = await getApplicationDocumentsDirectory();

File(join('$directory/output_file_name.xlsx'))
  ..createSync(recursive: true)
  ..writeAsBytesSync(fileBytes);
