Lois Lane, Reporting
So, 9 years ago I wrote a post about how I would love a tool that took a JSON data file, a Mako template, and generated a report using reStructured Text.
If you don't like that, pretend it says YAML, Jinja2 and Markdown. Anyway, same idea. Reports are not some crazy difficult thing, unless you have very demanding layout or need to add a ton of logic.
And hey, if you do need to add a ton of logic, you do know python, so how hard can it be to add the missing bits?
Well, not very hard. So here it is, 9 years later because I am sitting at an auditorium and the guy giving the talk is having computer problems.
