Meteor.js - Webix UI integration

This is work in progress on integrating Meteor.js, the best full-stack JavaScript framework (see why) and Webix, arguably the best UI widgets library (see an extensive comparison on StackOverflow).

Stay tuned by clicking Watch/Star on GitHub.

Meteor-Webix Demo

Usage

Get started by adding the webix:webix package and a skin. For example, to add the default skin:

meteor add webix:webix
meteor add webix:skin-flat

If you use Font Awesome icons, or have sortable tables or other UI components that need Font Awesome icons, install Font Awesome as well:

meteor add fortawesome:fontawesome

Use Meteor collections as usual and simply specify webix.proxy('meteor', Collection|Cursor) for the url and save properties of the component:

Movies = new Mongo.Collection('movies');

webix.ui({
  view: 'datatable',
  autoconfig: true,
  editable: true,
  url:  webix.proxy('meteor', Movies.find()),
  save: webix.proxy('meteor', Movies)
});

What works

  • package tests (font loading via skins, visual check)
  • load and save data to/from reactive DataTable, List, and other widgets backed by linear data structures

Needs testing

  • paging
  • dynamic data loading
  • hierarchical widgets (Tree, TreeTable)

TODO

  • clean up and merge the disparate Webix repos
  • map nested objects onto Webix forms (#10)
  • client-side error messages on failed server operations via Collection.deny
  • review
    • Webix wrapper for Meteor/Blaze reactive templates
    • routing
  • persist order of List/DataTable elements reordered via drag-and-drop (similar to rubaxa:sortable)
  • reactive Multiview, similar to templates:tabs
