Reports come in all flavours, but the code to generate them usually only comes in one: monotony. From simple data transformations to highly customized printable reports, you are often faced with a dilemma: used a canned solution at the cost of full control, or put together acres of glue code to tie together all the tools you'll need. Of course, there is another option, and that is Ruby Reports (Ruport). This book shows how Ruport makes your business reporting life suck less, through Ruby. As you read along, you'll pick up some of the best reporting tricks the Ruport developers know and walk through tons of practical examples that you can easily use in your day-to-day work.

Probably the single biggest advantage of the system is that it makes it trivial to aquire data from just about any source (CSV and a SQL database being two obvious examples), manipulate it using a common interface, and send it out as various types of output just as easily (plain text, CSV, HTML, PDF, email, etc.) If this is a task your job requires,...
