# Why ?
Grids, or spreadsheets, are ubiquitous in many organizations. At the same time Jupyter notebooks are growing as (one of) the best solution for scripting and interactive computing. In many contexts they tend to replace Excel.
So it is critically useful to visualize and interact with tabular data, directly from from Python, more specifically pandas, in a notebook.
# How ?
This library essentially is a custom Jupyter ipywidget.
Like all ipywidgets ipyaggrid has 2 parts:
- designed to enable easy access to basic ag-Grid features but allows unlimited customization through a full access to the ag-Grid API
- as transparent as possible to give flexible and unhindered access to the underlying library
- adds some convenience options and buttons to the most frequently used features
Project ipyaggrid receives direct funding from the following sources:
