I have a requirement to make a functionality in Excel to fetch and update data to/from a web service and I need to choose a language / tool to develop this.
The features I am looking for.
- Multi threading
- Preferably it should work on both Mac and Windows
- Ideally it should be portable (not must)
Things, I have tried so far
- VBA for Excel, its single threaded and hangs excel for a few minutes on large sets of data
- Excel-DNA works great but can only work on windows or is there a way to run it on Mac too?
- Xlwings works great but require few installations which does not make it portable Are there any other technologies that any one would like to suggest?
