Introducing Spread.Views, The First JavaScript Data Layout Component

We are very excited to introduce a new JavaScript component that takes data and lays it out virtually any way you can imagine. This includes tabular grids, calendars, cards, trellis, masonry, Gantt, news feed, timeline and more. You give it JSON data, choose your layout, customize, and deploy. It all just takes a few lines of code. This is the first component of its kind and it is currently in Community Technology Preview mode. That means you can try it for free. This article covers what you need to know to learn about what Spread.Views is and how to get started with it.

SpreadJS's Spread.Sheets component is so complete that it can be implemented with very little code and in just a few minutes. You only need the Spread.Sheets core JavaScript library and style sheet; there are no external dependencies.

DevChannel Update: Spread.Sheets v10 Preview with Client-side Excel IO Available

Our DevChannel delivers pre-release previews of next version builds and hot fixes. The first entry is a preview build of v10 which is due to release in November. This build has an early version of the new client-side ExcelIO feature. You can now implement Excel import and export functionality on the client and you no longer need to implement the .NET server component. This makes Spread.Sheets applications much easier to distribute and removes dependencies on IIS. Keep in mind that this is a very early preview and many Excel features are not yet supported. We have a special DevChannel forum in which you can discuss any problems you may be having.
