Quickstart

Get Started with Flexmonster Pivot Table and Charts Component in 5 minutes!

Get Flexmonster

Download Flexmonster to get the compiled CSS and JavaScript or include it with npm package manager.

  • Download

    Download a free trial of the component and extract the files from the downloaded package. Copy flexmonster/ folder into your web project root to your server. Note: our free trial ships with license key for 30 days.

  • Use npm package manager

    Our Pivot Table is available as npm package flexmonster. Run the command to install Flexmonster as a node module and save it as a dependency in your package.json:

    npm i flexmonster --save
    
    Get a free 30-days trial license key to use Flexmonster.

Initialization

To get your Pivot Table component embedded you should accomplish the following steps:

  1. Create <div> container for the component:
    <div id="pivotContainer">The component will appear here</div>
    
  2. Include flexmonster.js into your HTML page:
    <div id="pivotContainer">The component will appear here</div>
    <script src="flexmonster/flexmonster.js"></script>
    
    Note: src should contain the path to your flexmonster.js, when installing Flexmonster via npm the path will be the following: node_modules/flexmonster/flexmonster.js
  3. Add simple script to embed the component. licenseKey is your license or trial key, so you should replace XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX with an actual key:
    <div id="pivotContainer">The component will appear here</div>
    <script src="flexmonster/flexmonster.js"></script>
    
    <script>
    	var pivot = new Flexmonster({
    		container: "pivotContainer",
    		componentFolder: "flexmonster/",
    		toolbar: true,
    		licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"
    	});
    </script>
    
    
    Note 1: componentFolder should point to flexmonster/ folder. For example, when Flexmonster is included via npm, componentFolder should be defined as node_modules/flexmonster/
    Note 2: Flexmonster has more initialization parameters, check them out.
  4. Now launch the page from browser — here you go! The component without data is embedded into your project. You can see the example on JSFiddle.
