For work, I tend to work a lot with csv files, which sometimes are easier to edit quickly in notepad than opening them in bloody Excel every time.
Now I am starting to use Atom for that kind of affair and found myself wishing there was a csv language grammar / syntax highlighting for those pesky csv files.
That’s one thing.
But beyond that, it got me thinking about working with actual Office files. There are converters out there that can produce Markdown files from Word documents, and Excel viewers and Open Document editors etc… so I was wondering if anyone has thought of creating packages for working with Office formats, such as docx, xlsx, odf etc… ?
I’m sure it’s not a minor undertaking, but I wanted to open a discussion on the idea, as to how much of that might be feasible.
Working with tables is probably a tough one (there has been another discussion on Markdown tables already), but I can’t imagine it to be impossibe at least for basic formatting (not talking full Excel formula support or some such magic).
