Quick start

Get started with Flexmonster Pivot Table & Charts in 5 minutes!

Get Flexmonster

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

  • Download

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

  • Use npm package manager

    Our pivot table is available as an npm package called flexmonster. Run the following 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 (sent over email).

Initialization

To get your pivot table component embedded take the following steps:

  1. Create a <div> container for the component:
    <div id="pivotContainer">The component will appear here</div> 
  2. Include flexmonster.js in 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 with npm the path will be: node_modules/flexmonster/flexmonster.js

  3. Add a 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 the 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 a browser — there you go! The component without data is embedded into your project. You can see the example on JSFiddle.
