SlickGrid ES6

npm version npm downloads gzip size

This is a clone of the two biggest forks of SlickGrid - 6pac fork and X-SlickGrid, both of which have been converted to align with this project's goals and build strategy, both ready to be used out of the box[1]

NEW See it running in a create-react-app here:


The main goals are:

  • Make it easy to consume in a modern ES2016 codebase
  • Transpile down to ES5
  • Keep the existing SlickGrid API for both grids
  • Make dependency consumption implicit and not reliant on globals
  • Remove reliance on Slick. object namespace, everything just exports and needs to be imported, no more Slick.Editors etc.
  • Remove jquery-ui from deps list - replaced with Interact.js

[1] Yes, there are some compatibility issues, such as drag and reorder of columns with X-SlickGrid's frozenRows from frozen to none.

NB: Going forward, the 6pac version may be dropped.

Default Example Styles

Custom Styles

Installing and use

$ npm i slickgrid-es6 --save

In code:

import { Grid, Data, Formatters } from 'slickgrid-es6';
import { options, columns } from './grid-config';

const gridColumns = [{
  id: "%", 
  name: "% Complete", 
  field: "percentComplete", 
  formatter: Formatters.PercentCompleteBar
}, ...columns]; // some column def

const dataView = new Data.DataView();
dataView.setItems([ ... ]); // some data

const grid = new Grid('someid', dataView, columns, options);

Full list of exports you can de-structure:

  • Slick - returns the original namespace (Slick.core - events etc)
  • Grid - returns 6pac's SlickGrid
  • FrozenGrid - returns X-SlickGrid (frozen rows/columns)
  • Data - returns the Slick.Data model
  • Plugins - returns the default plugins converted/tweaked
  • Editors - returns the original pre-defined default editors
  • Formatters - returns the original pre-defined default cell formatters

To import stylesheets in LESS (for now):

// some vars like @grid-border-color: red;, see slick.grid.variables.less

@import "~slickgrid-es6/dist/slick.grid.less";
@import "~slickgrid-es6/dist/slick-default-theme.less";

Examples and development

Currently, the examples are being ported. You can start a webpack-dev-server with hot reload like this:

$ npm start

Then point your browser to http://localhost:8888/.

To create a new build for dist, run:

$ npm run build


Any pull requests and help with this are appreciated - both from conversion stand point and from SlickGrid bug fixes or feature additions.
