Handsontable Build Status

Handsontable is a data grid component with an Excel-like appearance. Built in JavaScript, it integrates with any data source and comes with features like data validation, sorting, grouping, data binding or column ordering. Actively supported by the Handsoncode team and the GitHub community.

Check out the demos at or fork the example on JSFiddle to see Handsontable in action.

Quick start

  1. A recommended way to install Handsontable is through Bower package manager using the following command:

    bower install handsontable --save

    Alternatively, you can download it in a ZIP file.

  2. After Handsontable is downloaded, embed the code into your project. 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">
  3. 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="example"></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('example');
    var hot = new Handsontable(container,
       data: data
