Use npm to install the latest version.

npm install handsontable

You can use Yarn, NuGet or other methods as well. You can load it directly from jsDelivr.


Create a placeholder - an HTML element holding a place for a data grid.

<div id="example"></div>

Import Handsontable and its stylesheet.

import Handsontable from "handsontable";
import 'handsontable/dist/handsontable.full.css';

Alternatively, you can simply embed it in your HTML file.

<script src=""></script>
<link href="" rel="stylesheet">

Now turn your placeholder into a data grid with sample data.

const data = [
  ['', 'Tesla', 'Volvo', 'Toyota', 'Ford'],
  ['2019', 10, 11, 12, 13],
  ['2020', 20, 11, 14, 13],
  ['2021', 30, 15, 12, 13]

const container = document.getElementById('example');
const hot = new Handsontable(container, {
  data: data,
  rowHeaders: true,
  colHeaders: true

Support and contribution

We provide support for all users through GitHub issues. If you have a commercial license then you can add a new ticket through the contact form.

If you would like to contribute to this project, make sure you first read the guide for contributors.

Browser compatibility

Handsontable is compatible with modern browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Edge. It also supports Internet Explorer 9 to 11 but with limited performance.


Handsontable is dual-licensed. You can either use a free license for all your non-commercial projects or purchase a commercial license. See the table below for a comparison of these two.

Free license Paid license
For non-commercial purposes such as teaching, academic research, personal experimentation, and evaluating on development and testing servers. For all commercial purposes
All features are available All features are available
Community support Dedicated support

License key

The license key is obligatory since Handsontable 7.0.0 (released in March 2019).

If you use Handsontable for purposes not intended toward monetary compensation such as, but not limited to, teaching, academic research, evaluation, testing and experimentation, pass the phrase 'non-commercial-and-evaluation', as presented below:

const hot = new Handsontable(container, {
  data: data,
  rowHeaders: true,
  colHeaders: true,
  licenseKey: 'non-commercial-and-evaluation'

If, on the other hand, you use Handsontable in a project that supports your commercial activity, then you must purchase the license key at

The license key is validated in an offline mode. No connection is made to any server. Learn more about how it works.
