[erlang-questions] Can erlang read xlsx?

It’s only a misuse because the library hasn’t been written yet.  It should be just as doable in Erlang as any other language, using the zip module to open the file and xmerl to interpret it.

I would suggest you to use other libs for that. Say PHP or something similar, and then pass data to Erlang.


I don't know your use case, but if somebody from my team would propose reading xlsx from Erlang I would definitely think that it is misuse of Erlang.
