javascript based business reporting


Open source platform for designing and rendering various reports.

jsreport is a reporting server which lets developers define reports using javascript templating engines (like jsrender or handlebars). It supports various report output formats like html, pdf, excel and others. It also includes advanced reporting features like user management, REST API, scheduling, designer or sending emails.

You can find more information on the official project website http://jsreport.net

see http://jsreport.net/downloads

To be able to install and start jsreport on your development machine you need to do following.

  1. install nodejs
  2. clone this repository
  3. npm install
  4. npm start

You may find installation troubleshooting guide specific for your platform here.

See Gruntfile.js for build automation options.

###Environemnts jsreport adapts to production and development nodejs environments. Difference is that in production environment you get javascript files combined and minified for fast web application startup opposite to development environment where you get all js files individually what makes debugging easier. Second difference is that in production environment jsreport use prod.config.json as configuration file opposite to dev.config.json in `development.

To change environment use cmd set NODE_ENV=development or use options your IDE provides. If you don't specify node environment jsreport assumes production as default.

###Configurations jsreport loads dev.config.json or prod.config.json configuration file on start up based on nodejs environment. If configuration file is not found, jsreport creates default configuration file from example.config.json.

See config documentation for details.


grunt test - start tests with file system based db (neDb), no mongo needed

grunt test-mongo - start tests with mongo db, mongodb must be running on localhost

grunt test-all - start tests with nedb and then once again with mongo (used with travis CI)

grunt test-integration - start all tests with nedb including integration tests, needs java, fop and phantomjs running


jsreport is split into many separated repositories usually representing reusable libraries. All of the repositories accepts pull requests without further complications. Only this main jsreport repository currently requires you to send us a signed contributor license agreement. This will be required only for limited time until we will separate this repository into free GPL licensed jsreport and repository with payed enterprise features.

To motivate contributions we provide free enterprise licenses to contributors.


We are currently planning next development, some of these features we have in mind..

  • drag and drop designer
  • improved statistics extension with logs from failed requests
  • all templates wide scripts
  • code completion for templating engines based on sample data
