The jQuery.ganttView plugin is a very lightweight plugin for creating a Gantt chart in plain HTML...no vector graphics or images required. The plugin supports dragging and resizing the Gantt blocks and callbacks to trap the updated data.
Currently the plugin has been tested, and is working in: FF 3.5+, Chrome 5+, Safari 4+, IE8+. There are minor issues in IE7 and I haven't even attempted to use it in IE6. If you encounter any issues with any version of Internet Explorer and would like to contribute CSS fixes please do so, several people have asked for IE6 support.
The plugin depends on the following libraries:
- jQuery 1.4 or higher (obviously)
- jQuery-UI 1.8 or higher
The internal roadmap for the plugin is detailed in the project wiki. If you're interested in features outside of what's described there, we'd be interested to discuss pull requests that would add these features. If you like the plugin, feel free to fork it and submit your patches back.
Guidelines: If you'd like to offer a new feature please help us out by submitting the pull request with only the fewest changes necessary.
Ideal: Fork the project, apply just the individual changes to the individual files effected, submit pull request.
Those pull requests can usually be automatically merged and closed through the site here.
If your pull request includes things like:
- changes to dependencies or where they're hosted
- stylistic modifications
- moving project files to different directories
- more than one new feature / functional change
one of us will have to do the work of carving out just the feature being pulled. Your request is likely to sit unmerged for a while if that's the case.
