Using Excel Files with Webix Widgets

As a rule, companies work with a lot of data and already use Excel files in their workflows. Among other things, business process automation requires shared access to files. For sharing, Excel files can be published as web pages or uploaded to web services like Google Docs. And still, there is a problem because such services do not allow you to embed spreadsheets into web applications and web sites. I’ll show you how Webix UI library can help you with this task.

How to Create Custom Report Engine with Webix Spreadsheet

Software can make your routine simpler and with better results. For instance, making clear and good-looking reports would turn into a real battle without a helpful tool. One of these tools is Excel, a well-known mega-beast of valiant deeds and immortal glory. Yet, if business-warriors have to make some custom report, it’s developer-warriors who get their share of the job. This might be a problem. Every time you have to involve extra people in routine procedures, it’s costly and time-consuming (to say nothing of the fact that developer-warriors have a lot of other battles to fight).

It would be good to design a report engine — another mega-beast that is as powerful and helpful. The complex widget SpreadSheet, one of the components of the Webix UI library, is a relevant core element for a decent mega-beast to win the deathmatch and save your end-users from extra expenses. Join me, developer-warriors, and I’ll show you how to enhance SpreadSheet and make it serve business-warriors well in their battles. Together we’ll create a spreadsheet-based report engine that will allow your end-users to make a custom report themselves by choosing templates from a list and editing them to their liking.

Boosting Webix Pivot Performance: HTML5 Web Workers

Performance is a key feature of modern web applications. It is a mountain you have to climb to win your customer’s heart, but sometimes its top remains unreachable due to heavy tasks the application has to perform on the client side.

Take, for instance, Webix Pivot table JS widget. It does a hard job of calculating and aggregating data and may leave the UI unresponsive if the data is too big. Fortunately, from version 4.2 the widget comes supplied with an HTML5 Web Worker, which takes all the data processing into a separate thread.
