Arelle Applications

Arelle provides an application programming interface that is used to develop XBRL applications.


EDGAR® Renderer

EDGAR Renderer enables investors to view the interactive data filings submitted under the US Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules that require the use of XBRL via the SEC website. The Previewer provides the capability to test how an interactive data submission will appear on the SEC’s website when submitted via EDGAR. The Previewer is only a test mechanism and does not constitute an official filing. Once a company completes its interactive data submission via EDGAR, the results of the rendering engine will be presented with the official filing on the SEC website.

EDGAR Renderer was created by staff of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Data and content created by government employees within the scope of their employment are not subject to domestic copyright protection. 17 U.S.C. 105.

There are two distributions of the version currently in production at the SEC:

  1. The ZIP download URL of Python 3.4.2 mentioned in quick-start-edgar-renderer.htm is unavailable. Would it be okay to install Python from https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-343/. Or does it have to be version mentioned in your installation file?

    Thanks.

      There’s a link to that python zip on the documentation->edgar renderer installation page.

      Of course you can download python from python.org (it would be the same), but you’ll also need to get all the dependent libraries and a known-compatible version of arelle into the site-packages. It would be easier with the zip download (or at least that way you could see which packages are in their download).

    Yes but as he said, the zip download is unavailable, we get a 404 error

    Could you let us know if there is release notes available for this version, which would either state the difference between current and old previewer or the expected behavior of the rendering engine.

    The excel style sheet is not generated for “Mutual Fund” files.
    Application throws warning message stating unable to generate excel since the document contains embedded commands. Could you please advise on the same.
