Spreadsheets to Websites

| Comments

This morning I came across a two interesting JavaScript libraries designed to help make Google Spreadsheets a data source for websites. Given how simple it is to get started creating a spreadsheet it seems like a great way to make that data available for public viewing.

I can imagine this being extremely useful for someone who already maintains a spreadsheet with carefully tabulated and calculated data who isn’t interested in repeatedly exporting / importing it into a database for web viewing.


Tabletop takes a Google Spreadsheet and makes it easily accessible through Javascript.


Sheetsee.js is a javascript library mashup that allows you to fill a website with content from a Google Spreadsheet. The web content and visualizations will update with every auto save by Google.
