A datagrid widget for the Monomer library.

Current Status

  • Somewhat buggy and incomplete. Don't build your business on this.

Current Features

  • Vertical and horizontal scrolling.
  • Resizable columns.
  • Column sorting, with a customizable sort key.
  • Configurable column alignment (left or right).
  • Custom widgets for each cell, to override the standard label.
  • Custom width/height padding for each cell, configured per column.
  • Scrolling to a particular row when sent a message.
  • Custom footer widgets on the bottom of each column.
  • Efficient implementation that only inflates visible widgets, scaling to at least 10000 rows.

Definite Future Goals

  • Better documention.
  • Better tests.
  • Prettier appearance.

Possible Future Goals

  • Explore providing an API where current sort/column widths/etc are stored in the parent model and updated by hagrid via a lens. This may remove some complexity around merging and the specification of initial sorts/column widths.

`stack path --local-install-root`/bin/example-resizing-cells # Demo where the cells are constantly changing size.
