React Grid

Data grid for React.

Build Status Coverage Status


React Grid is available via npm.

npm install adazzle-react-grid --save

Or if you'd like to use bower, it's as easy as:

bower adazzle-react-grid --save


React Grid comes in two flavours. A basic uneditable data grid as well as a more advanced datagrid that attempts to provide a rich excel like experience with filtering, sorting, copy/paste, cell drag down, custom editors and formatters.

To use the basic grid, just include the following files

<!-- The core React srcrary -->
<script src=""></script>
<!-- basic React Grid component -->
<script src="adazzle-react-grid/dist/ReactGrid.Grid.js"></script>

or if using CommonJs

var Grid = require('adazzle-react-grid');

To use the advanced features, add these files to your page

<!-- The core React srcrary -->
<script src=""></script>
<!-- advanced ReactGrid component -->
<script src="adazzle-react-grid/dist/ReactGrid.Grid.WithAddons.js"></script>
<!-- optional collection of editors for React Grid-->
<script src="adazzle-react-grid/dist/ReactGrid.Grid.Editors.js"></script>
<!-- optional collection of formatters for React Grid-->
<script src="adazzle-react-grid/dist/ReactGrid.Grid.Formatters.js"></script>

or if using CommonJs

var ExcelGrid = require('adazzle-react-grid/addons');
var GridEditors = require('adazzle-react-grid/editors');
var GridFormatters = require('adazzle-react-grid/formatters');

Building Your Copy of React Grid

The process to build reactGrid.js is built entirely on top of node.js, using many srcraries you may already be familiar with.


  • You have node installed at v0.10.0+


run npm install You can then just run gulp this will:

  • compile all the jsx into js
  • wrap up all the examples registered under \examples
  • compile less -> css
  • fire up a server and open a test page


We use gulp to automate many tasks. Look in gulp/tasks folder to see full list. The important ones to know:

# Build examples folder, fire up server and open exmaples page 
# Build reactGrid srcrary in UMD format in dist folder  
gulp dist
# Build and run tests in your browser 
gulp tests-launch 
# Compile Less and build styles 
gulp styles
# Wipe out build directory 
gulp clean

Adding examples

To add any other examples, you just need to:

  1. Add a .js file under the examples folder that returns a react component by module.exports = someNewExample
  2. in examples\index.js register this by adding components.push({id:'Name for your component', module:require('./nameOfYourFile') });

This will then add a new menu to the examples.html page


we are using jasmine for tests and these can either be run in a standalone page by running gulp tests-launch *note: you need to run bower install first For automation, we are using karma To run the tests use gulp tests To watch for file changes, use gulp tdd this is a work in progress, and wont watch your files unless you first run gulp tests-build to do our react/browserify transforms
