Need Sujjestions On Opensource Reporting Tool To Use In A ROR Project

Hi All,

I have developed an application using ROR and MySql as the database and
now i need an open source reporting tool to generate reports from my
database.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Thank you.

Why not add the reports to your ror application?

Hi Colin,

Thanks for the reply. I did not get exactly what you mean by "add the
reports".

I meant you to write code in the application to generate the reports you want.

My people here in the company want me to search for a
reporting tool(an open source) through which we can generate reports.
MySQL is our database.

Oh, you mean a general purpose reporting tool. I have no personal
experience of those with rails but googling for
ruby rails report generator
seems to generate lots of useful looking hits.

Hi Gutham,

I have integrated one reporting tool for my intranet RoR application. I think it will be useful for you. That reporting tool name is will_filter. It is rails engine. And following is the link for the documentation about that engine

Thanks & regards,

Thanks Vijay,

I am having a look in to it.And do you have any idea about any open
source free BI (Business Intelligence) Tools?

FusionCharts makes a free version you can use. High Charts is another solution although it is not free. It is however pretty robust, not very expensive, and covers a lot of ground. The Google visualization api looks very promising too. There are some others. google away…
