    Alternative installation

    AMD support

    If you use a modular script loader then you can require Handsontable just like any other module:

    require(['handsontable'], function(Handsontable) {
        var hot = new Handsontable(document.getElementById('example'), {
          data: [[1, 2, 3, 4], [1, 2, 3, 4]]

    CommonJS module support

    If you use a CommonJS compatible environment you can use the require function to import Handsontable:

    var handsontable = require('handsontable');

    To bundle Handsontable with Browserify you must specify the module names of all required modules:

    browserify main.js -o bundle.js -r moment -r pikaday -r zeroclipboard -r numbro

    Basic usage

    Assuming you have already installed Handsontable, add an empty <div> element that will be turned into a spreadsheet:

    <div id="example"></div>

    In the next step, pass a reference to that <div> element and fill it with sample data:

    var data = [
      ["", "Ford", "Volvo", "Toyota", "Honda"],
      ["2016", 10, 11, 12, 13],
      ["2017", 20, 11, 14, 13],
      ["2018", 30, 15, 12, 13]
    var container = document.getElementById('example');
    var hot = new Handsontable(container, {
      data: data,
      rowHeaders: true,
      colHeaders: true
