Spreadsheets as web pages
December 10, 2011 8:12 PM   Subscribe

How is this site (example 1 and 2) embedding interactive spreadsheets into its web pages? All I can tell is that it’s using javascript. If it’s some sort of custom solution, are there alternatives (either paid or free) that would let me do something similar in WordPress?

Not sure if the sites you listed are using this, but I saw ExcelMashup on Engadget today.

Thanks birdherder, I read about the excelmashup today. It’s actually what reminded me to ask this question. The example spreadsheets on the site I linked to look almost identical to Excel spreadsheets and let you download an Excel workbook with the same data. I’d like to find something that would give a very similar look to an actual Excel workbook.

It's using this jquery app: http://visop-dev.com/Project+jQuery.sheet

Use jquery for Wordpress plugin then follow the instructions to put it in a page or wherever.
