Heres the latest situation from the Codematic free Excel add-ins and tools downloads.
The anonimser hasn’t been up that long so that may not be a fair representation of its popularity.
Its good to see that XLAnalyst is still a popular download – sometimes I wonder if the fad of caring about spreadsheet quality passed faster than skateboarding. (I am saving up for a new skateboard, having realised the kids have better ones than mine).
Watch out for a new commercial version of XLAnalyst… one day ;-). Its all written, I’m using it on my own projects, I just want to do some more structured testing and package it up for release – both of which are much less fun than writing software.
The most interesting thing to me is the continued popularity of the base xll project. I have always thought there is a lot of pent up interest in this ‘fast worksheet funciton’ space. but other than doing the odd training course, and offering to convert VBA UDFs to xll ones I havent really come up with a worthwhile commercial offering. Any ideas?
The popularity of fast worksheet unprotection has never surprised me, the pitiful download to purchase ratio is a little on the disappointing side though (not a surprise though).
