Webix Hint is a widget for creating guided tours through apps. This is especially suitable for apps with a lot of contents and complex forms. With Hint, you can create guides with several steps. On each step, users will see a focused area and instructions how to work with the specific element of the app.
I’ll show you:
For demonstration, I’ll create a mock service for ordering medications online. I’ll deal with the UI aspect only.

New Webix 5.0 includes the GeoChart widget created with Google Maps API. GeoChart is a pretty neat service for creating map charts for presenting data associated with countries and regions. I’ll show you how to use the main features of the widget to create an interactive world map. If you are not yet familiar with the widget, I hope that GeoChart will become your faithful friend after I introduce it to you. If you already love GeoChart as much as I do, you will probably gain a better insight into things you can do with it.

This is a guest post by Dragos Stoica.
The initial task
My objective was to design and implement a simple application allowing me to manage my freelance business. The application is called iFact and is available on github. The basic activity consists in getting contracts with clients, performing the work or service and invoicing the client. Also, I needed to manage the invoice flow and to have a minimal dashboard for cash flow control. The volume of invoices is low: from one to a couple of invoices per month. The number of clients and contracts per client is low, it means 5 to 10 clients with 1-3 contracts per client, normally one single contract active at any given moment in time.

This week’s adventure is another visit to the kingdom of the Most Recognizable User Interfaces. Trello provides one of the best interfaces for task management. A single glance reveals all the latest tasks, who’s working on them and what tasks are planned. Let’s look at how the same interface can be created with Webix UI library.
The kingdom is populated by UI architects and builders, so during this trip, you’ll watch the construction of a small but amazing castle. The main unit for the castle will be Webix Kanban. You can see the live demo and get the blueprints from GitHub. And now the adventure begins.

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.
