Hi Yaw,

Just tried it. Looks great.

Do you know if this is open source? If yes, is there a repository where this
code is publicly available.

Thanks for your reply

We are pleased to announce a new ODK tool -- XLS2XForm. You can find
the tool and a tutorial at http://opendatakit.org/use/xls2xform.

With XLS2XForm, forms can be designed in Excel and converted to a
XForm that can be used with ODK tools. XLS2XForm supports the entire
range of prompts (even some unreleased ones), constraints and
branching, multiple languages and multimedia. And for those making
larger and more complex forms, we think you’ll love the spreadsheet
form factor.

This XLS2XForm release is possible because of Jeff Beorse. Jeff is one
of the finest undergrads we’ve worked with at UW, and his commitment
to the ODK project and this tool have been incredible. Thanks also go
to the Millennium Villages project (especially Matt Berg, Andrew
Marder, and Alex Dorey) for creating the first version of the tool,
and to Clint Tseng (of Socrata.com and ODK Build) for putting the
hosting infrastructure in place.

Please do try out XLS2XForm and let us know what you think. Again, you
can find the tool and a tutorial at
http://opendatakit.org/use/xls2xform. Email your questions to
opendatakit@googlegroups.com and happy form building!

there are two repos that you should know about. the repo with our
version is at https://github.com/jbeorse/pyxform. the repo with the
modi research group's (the original) version is at
https://github.com/mvpdev/pyxform. we are going to be merging the two,
so it might be prudent to wait until we finish the merge.

Oh, thanks.
I've had a peep.
When would that merge be done?
Any significant differences in the syntax/formats between both ?

we are still sorting out the schedule, so no current eta. there are
big differences which is why we need to talk through the merge and get
everything standardized.
