ExtendScript is a dialect of JavaScript used in Photoshop and InDesign scripts.

Each standalone release script is available at

xlsx.extendscript.js is a special ExtendScript-compatible build. The script is carefully assembled to work around ExtendScript quirks. Due to bugs in various JavaScript minifiers and tools, scripts cannot be compressed or post-processed.

{"" + current + "/package/dist/xlsx.extendscript.js"} is the URL for {current}

After downloading the script, it can be directly referenced with #include:

#include "xlsx.extendscript.js"

For local deployments, the scripts can be placed in the Scripts folder. The path is application-specific.

App Location
Photoshop \Presets\Scripts within the Application folder
InDesign Windows > Utilities > Scripts, click > "Reveal in Explorer"

:::note CEP usage

The ExtendScript build should be used when performing spreadsheet operations from the host context (within a jsx script file).

The standalone scripts should be added to CEP extension HTML.
