Get Flexmonster

There are a few ways to include Flexmonster in your project. This guide describes all of them:

Download Flexmonster via Flexmonster CLI

The most convenient way to get Flexmonster Pivot is to use Flexmonster CLI — a command-line interface tool for Flexmonster. Install the CLI globally using npm:

npm install -g flexmonster-cli

After this, a new flexmonster command will be available in the console. Learn more about Flexmonster CLI and its commands in our documentation.

Now it’s time to get Flexmonster Pivot.

Get Flexmonster for your project by running one of the commands below from the folder with the package.json file:

Pure JavaScript

flexmonster add flexmonster

This command downloads Flexmonster to node_modules/ and adds it as a dependency to the package.json file.

Now it’s time to start using Flexmonster in your project – see our quick start guide.

Angular

flexmonster add ng-flexmonster

This command downloads the Flexmonster Angular module to node_modules/ and adds it as a dependency to the package.json file.

Now it’s time to start using Flexmonster in your Angular project – see our guide.

React

flexmonster add react-flexmonster

This command downloads the Flexmonster React module to node_modules/ and adds it as a dependency to the package.json file.

Now it’s time to start using Flexmonster in your React project – see our guide.

To learn how to embed Flexmonster in your web page, refer to our quick start guide.

Download the Flexmonster package

The most convenient way to get Flexmonster Pivot is Flexmonster CLI — a command-line interface tool for Flexmonster. Install the CLI globally using npm:

npm install -g flexmonster-cli

Now download the Flexmonster Pivot package with the following CLI command:

flexmonster create javascript

This command downloads the .zip archive with Flexmonster Pivot and automatically unpacks the files in the current folder.

As a result, the flexmonster-javascript-project/ folder will appear in your working directory. Open it and copy the flexmonster/ folder into the root of your web project.

Note: to use a trial version of Flexmonster, you will need to set a trial key. It can be found in the flexmonster-javascript-project/TrialKey.txt file. Copy the contents of the file and set the trial key using the licenseKey initialization parameter:

var pivot = new Flexmonster({
container: "pivotContainer",
licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"
});

To embed Flexmonster in your project, see the quick start guide.

Include Flexmonster from WebJars

If you have a JVM-based web application, you can include Flexmonster into it using WebJars:

Step 1. Go to WebJars and search for Flexmonster using the Search input field.

Step 2. In the Build Tool column, select a tab with the build tool used in your project (e.g., Maven).

Step 3. Include Flexmonster into your configuration file using the code snippet provided in the Build Tool column. For example, the Maven’s pom.xml configuration file should look similar to the following:

<dependencies>
    ...
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.webjars</groupId>
        <artifactId>flexmonster</artifactId>
        <version>2.9.0</version>
    </dependency>
    ...
</dependencies>

Now Flexmonster can be used in your JVM-based project.
