Generate Beautiful Reports and Documents with Windward and JavaScript

Can you believe that you only need 13 lines of codes, a mix of HTML and JavaScript, to generate virtually any type of report? It is understandable that you need to focus on perfecting the codes in your app because that is a bigger priority. But, creating reports is also important. This is why Windward developed an incredible solution to enable developers to generate documents and reports without losing focus on their core job.

With Windward, you can quickly make reports that are not only informative but also visually appealing. Our tool lets you have the creative freedom to layout and format your reports according to your preference. This is an opportunity for you to make your reports look consistent with your corporate branding.

How It Works?

Windward starts by pulling the necessary data from a data source. In fact, you can have it pull data sets from different data sources and combine it in one single file. Windward then displays the data in a more presentable and comprehensive way to let the non-technical users understand what they mean. Some of the supported data sources are JSON, SQL, XML, among others

After this, literally, anyone in the business organization can make the report better by designing the layout and format of the template using applications that they are already familiar with – Microsoft Office. And since it is MS Office, there are a lot of formatting and layout functionalities you can apply to your reports.

If you find JavaScript to be one of the simplest and most straightforward programming languages, you will also find Windward’s report designer to be so straightforward and simple when it comes to generating reports and documents.

Here are a few positive aspects about Windward:

  • It is provided by the RESTful engine. Moreover, it can be requested as a link and responds with a report as its content.
  • The client library enables both asynchronous and synchronous calls to different engines so there really is no need for long lines of codes. It is literally just 13 lines of code!
  • The main template designer is Microsoft Office. This means that anyone in the organization can create the reports without worrying about messing up the codes. They can do it with Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.
  • Reports and documents can be in various formats such as DOCX, PPTX, XLSX, PDF, SVG, HTML, PostScript, and Printer.
  • Because there is no fuss, creating reports is super fast and simple

Windward understands that dealing with technical codes is not everyone’s job. This is why the company created a solution that will let programming languages communicate with a tool that will enable even non-technical users to manipulate data with ease.
