django-excel-response2 2.0.6

A function extends of Tarken's django-excel-response


A subclass of HttpResponse which will transform a QuerySet, or sequence of sequences, into either an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file formatted for Excel, depending on the amount of data. All of this is done in-memory and on-the-fly, with no disk writes, thanks to the StringIO library.


When using Tarken’s django-excel-response. We find that Chinese is messed code when we open .xls in Mac OS. As discussed in We realize django-excel-response2 Based on Tarken’s django-excel-response to solve this problem By adding a Param named font to set font.
