Laser runs in Windows browsers with the Silverlight add-in enabled, to provide online access to Ruby data.

There is also a version (Laser.exe) that runs as a desktop application, without the need for a Silverlight-enabled browser.

Tables can be simple or complex. Laser can display any reports that can be shown in Ruby.

You can create and edit the structure (top, side, filter weight) in a specification form similar to Ruby’s.

Galleries are collections of reports that you can cycle through

You can have Excel based Dashboards that can be dynamically filtered.

With Excel’s graphics machinery at your disposal these dashboards can be spectacular.
