Integration with Webpack

This tutorial will help you integrate the pivot table with webpack. Follow these steps to set up a simple webpack project using Flexmonster Pivot Table & Charts:

Prerequisites

To run a simple application you will need Node.js and npm. Get it here if it’s not already installed on your machine.

Open a terminal/console window and verify that you are running at least node v4.x.x and npm 3.x.x by running node -v and npm -v.

Step 1: Create a new project based on the sample from GitHub

Download the .zip archive with the sample or clone it from GitHub with the following command:

git clone https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-webpack my-proj
cd my-proj

Step 2: Install npm packages

Install the npm packages described in package.json:

npm install

Step 3: Run the sample project

Open index.js and replace XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX with your actual license key. If you don’t have a license key, get a trial key here.

Run in the console:

npm start

After that, the working sample will be available at http://localhost:8080/.

Project structure

Let’s take a closer look at the folder structure of this application:

  • dist/
    • index.html – here we add the <div> container for Flexmonster.
  • src/
    • index.js – here we embed our pivot table.
  • package.json – contains the description of the npm packages.
  • webpack.config.js – the webpack configuration file with standard CSS and font loading.

Take a look at the content of the key files:

index.js

// ES2015 
import 'flexmonster/flexmonster.min.css';
import Flexmonster from 'flexmonster';

// CommonJS 
// require('flexmonster/flexmonster.min.css');
// const Flexmonster = require('flexmonster');

new Flexmonster({
    container: "#pivot",
    // Please replace XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX with your own key
    licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX",
    toolbar: true
})

webpack.config.js

const path = require('path');

module.exports = {
    mode: 'development',
    entry: {
        app: './src/index.js',
    },
    devServer: {
        contentBase: './dist'
    },
    output: {
        filename: 'bundle.js',
        path: path.resolve(__dirname, 'dist')
    },
    module: {
        rules: [
            {
                test: /\.css$/,
                use: [
                    'style-loader',
                    'css-loader'
                ]
            },
            {
                test: /\.(woff|woff2|eot|ttf|otf|svg)$/,
                use: [
                    'file-loader'
                ]
            }
        ]
    }
};
