Getting Started

Download the source files from ui-grid github and include them in your project including the dependencies:

<link rel="styleSheet" href="release/ui-grid.min.css"/>
<script src=""></script>
<script src="/release/ui-grid.min.js"></script>

At this point you should be able to use ui-grid.

Creating a Simple Grid

Step 1 - Include the uiGrid in your project

<link rel="styleSheet" href="release/ui-grid.min.css"/>
<script src=""></script>
<script src="/release/ui-grid.min.js"></script>

Step 2 - Add uiGrid module as a dependency to your app

var app = angular.module("myApp", ["ui-grid"]);

Step 3 - Data for the grid

$scope.myData = [
        "firstName": "John",
        "lastName": "Doe"
        "firstName": "Jane",
        "lastName": "Doe"

Step 4 - HTML Markup for the Grid

Use the ui-grid directive and pass in your scope property of myData.

<div ng-controller="mainCtrl">
    <div id="grid1" ui-grid="{ data: myData }"></div>

This should render a grid with two columns - First Name and Last Name.

It takes the keys of the first item of data array as column names and converts the camelCase style keys into proper words: “firstName” to “First Name”.
