UI-Grid has an excellent plugin system. Most new features can be added as plugins. Please see some discussion of that in the Developer guidelines. There is a list of known plugins on the tutorial site. If you would like your plugin added to that list, please edit the tutorial page and send a pull request.


The first step is to install dependencies. git is required and must be available from the command line. If you don't have it, install git and ensure that the executable is in your path. If you are new to git, the easiest way to install is by installing the github client.

The grunt command line utility is also required.

# If you don't already have the grunt-cli installed:
> npm install -g grunt-cli

With git and grunt-cli installed you simply run the following commands to install all dependencies.

> npm install
> grunt install

The default grunt task will test and build files into dist/

> grunt


Development "watch" task. This will automatically rebuild from source on changes, reload Gruntfile.js if you change it, and rebuild the docs.

  1. A server on localhost:9002 serving whichever directory you checked out, with livereload. Navigate to http://localhost:9002/misc/demo to see the demo files.
  2. A server on localhost:9003 serving the ./docs directory. These are the docs built from source with grunt-uidocs-generator.

grunt dev

By default grunt dev will start several karma background watchers that will run the tests against multiple versions of angular. You may specify the version(s) you want to use with the --angular flag:

> grunt dev --angular=1.6.7

> grunt dev --angular=1.5.11,1.6.7

You can also use the --browsers specify what browsers to test with (ChromeHeadless is the default).

> grunt dev --browsers=Chrome

# Run a single test run against multiple browsers
> grunt karma:single --browsers=Chrome,Firefox,IE

By default the dev tasks runs e2e tests with protractor. If you have problems with them running slow or hanging, you can disable them with the --no-e2e flag:

> grunt dev --no-e2e

The grunt task is getting slower as the body of tests gets larger. If you're only working on the core functionality you can disable the unit tests on the features with the --core flag:

> grunt dev --core

As a shortcut for options that the developers frequently use, there is also a --fast flag, which equates to --core --no-e2e --angular=<latest>:

> grunt dev --fast


The karmangular task runs tests serially against multiple browsers (it is used internally by the dev task).

# Run tests against all available versions of Angular on Chrome
> grunt karmangular --browsers=Chrome

# Run tests with a couple versions of Angular against the default ChromeHeadless browser
> grunt karmangular --angular=1.5.11,1.6.7


ui-grid is set up to run against SauceLabs. You must have the SAUCE_ACCESS_KEY environment variable set.

# Execute tests for a couple versions of angular on IE8
> grunt karmangular --angular=1.5.11,1.6.7 --browsers=SL_IE_8

# Run the watch tasks against IE10
> grunt dev --browsers=SL_IE10

The full list of SauceLabs browsers can be seen by running grunt saucebrowsers. Usually it should suffice to let Travis do this testing automatically, unless you're trying to debug a browser-specific issue.

What Happened to 2.x?

As of the 3.0 release, 2.x is officially deprecated. There will be no further releases. If for some reason you need to find the 2.x source please see the 2.x branch.

The 2.x docs are here:

Repository Rename

With the 3.0 release, the repository has been renamed from "ng-grid" to "ui-grid".

All network traffic to GitHub should redirect automatically but they say you should update your git remote url:

git remote set-url origin


Thanks to Sauce Labs and BrowserStack for providing their testing platforms to open source projects for free.
