Hi all,

Just wondered what you guys use for end-user reporting in your rails apps if anything? We’ve tried a few things and are about to embark on an evaluation of Crystal Reports. Has anybody had any experience of this in a RoR environment?

Depending on your needs, there are a couple of Ruby-based reporting
tools. Ruport ( is one of them, another is
ActiveWarehouse ( which I am
developing. Both are open source.

If you are looking for charting options then you could use Gruff or
Scruffy or alternatively use a Flash-based graphing tool such as
XML/SWF Charts ( or Fusion Charts.

If you'd like to discuss this further feel free to email me directly
or join the ActiveWarehouse mailing list. HTH.
