fin-hypergrid is an ultra-fast HTML5 grid presentation layer, achieving its speed by rendering (in a canvas tag) only the currently visible portion of your (virtual) grid, thus avoiding the latency and life-cycle issues of building, walking, and maintaining a complex DOM structure. Please be sure to checkout our design overview
Below is an example custom application built on top of the Hypergrid API tooling. It also highlights a DOM-based custom external editor triggered via hypergrid events as well as interaction with Hypergrid’s column ordering API.

v3.3.2 25 November 2019
npm module (recommended)
Published as a CommonJS module to npm.
Specify a SEMVER of
"fin-hypergrid": "3.3.2" (or
"^3.3.2") in your package.json file,
npm install command, and let your bundler (wepback,
Browserify) create a single file containing both Hypergrid and your application.
For small and informal examples and proofs-of-concept, load a pre-bundled build file (
fin-hypergrid.min.js) from the GitHub CDN. See the CDN index for links.
Your application can load one of these pre-bundled build files (in a
<script> tag), which creates the global namespace
window.fin (as needed) and populates it with
As of v3.2.1, the same build files are also available in a
umd folder on npm for distribution via the unpkg CDN which processes SEMVER semantics when provided. For example,
<script src="https://unpkg.com/fin-hypergrid@^3.2/umd/fin-hypergrid.min.js"></script> loads v3.3.2 which is the greatest (most recent) version number matching the SEMVER pattern
^3.2 (aka 3..).
fin-hypergrid/build repo generates the build files.
It also hosts the demo source files that test and show off various Hypergrid features.
Some of these use the npm module while others use the bundled build file.
Working versions of all demos are published to the CDN (list of links).
(This app bundles the npm module plus all of its own modules together into a single file (
For illustrative purposes, this alternate version loads
the pre-bundled build file
fin-hypergrid.js plus specially IIFE-wrapped versions of each its own modules discretely.)
Who else is using Hypergrid?
The Perspective open source project uses Hypergrid v3 (demo links in the README) and does a lot more than Hypergrid alone, such as table pivots and charting.
