Handsontable Build Status

Handsontable is a minimalist approach to Excel-like table editor (datagrid/data grid) in HTML & JavaScript.

Runs in IE 10+, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera.

See the demos at or fork the example on JSFiddle.


First, include all the dependencies. All the files that you need are in the dist\ directory:

<script src="dist/handsontable.full.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" media="screen" href="dist/handsontable.full.css">

Then, create a new Handsontable object, passing a reference to an empty div as a first argument. After that, load some data if you wish:

<div id="hot"></div>
  var data = [
    ["", "Kia", "Nissan", "Toyota", "Honda"],
    ["2008", 10, 11, 12, 13],
    ["2009", 20, 11, 14, 13],
    ["2010", 30, 15, 12, 13]

  var container = document.getElementById('hot');
  var hot = new Handsontable(container,
      data: data,
      minSpareRows: 1,
      colHeaders: true,
      contextMenu: true
