Python/Microsoft Excel Integration
There are several ways of doing this, such as communicating via a (XML-)RPC-like protocol or using COM. However, the traditional way of integrating outside code into Excel has been through the Add-in mechanism.
It turns out that Python can also be integrated into an Add-In and packaged to produce a finished product, or a fully extensible user environment.
We have been working on several technologies related to this recently, and are now releasing a first-generation Add-In that allows simple, integration of Python and Excel. See these pages for more information. For more enquiries contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
