Table

Upload CSV or Excel data to create a searchable, sortable table

Updated 3 days ago to v5.2.1 by Flourish team

How to use this template

This is a beta template, and we would love to know what you think of it! Send us an e-mail if you have any requests, problems or questions.

What's it for?

This template allows you make a template in which your audience can search, filter and explore. Pretty boring, huh? Luckily, we added a way to turn your columns into mini visualisations! For now you can make a basic bar chart, but we'll be adding more visualisation types very soon.

How to get started

  1. Upload your data
  2. Done πŸ™‚
  3. Want to turn your columns into mini bar charts? Go to "Chart columns" on the right hand side and type in the column names

FAQ

Tell me more about those mini visualisations

Of course. Let's say you have election results for each state in America. We have a column for state name, population, Republican %, Democrat%.

Now we want to turn Republican % and Democrat% into a bar chart, so we can immediately see the vote results for each state.

  1. Go to "Chart columns" on the right hand side, and enable "Bar Chart Columns"
  2. Fill in Democrats %, Republicans %
  3. This should turn the two columns into a new column with the bar chart
  4. Give the newly made bar chart a name

Can I change the text styling for some cells

Yes, you can. The cells can be parsed with something called "Markdown". This is a mini language that allows you to format text. For example, you can use **double asterisks** to make text bold, or *single asterisks* to make text italic. There are many other things you can do with Markdown, such as adding urls, images, titles, lists and HTML. We recommend taking a look at the full Markdown documentation.

How do I add images to the table

The template will automatically turn image urls into images inside the table. If you would like to show the actual url inside your table, then just add a character either at the start or end of the url.

Can I add additional information to a cell?

Yes, you can do that via a popup. Just add ">>" to the cell followed by the text you want to display in the popup. So a cell containing "London >> Capital of England" will show up as "London", but when you hover over it, will show a popup with "Capital of England".

Can I also use this as a searchable tool

Yes! Just go to the "Search" setting panel and tick the box "Hide results before search".

Does this table work with a lot of data?

It works pretty quickly, even with about 100,000 rows of data. You can optimize it by limiting the columns to search through.

So what happens on mobile?

We've made it quite flexible for you. You could choose to switch to a mobile blocks view, but if you prefer to keep a table view (with scrollbars) than that's also possible.

This section documents API usage specific to this template, so for an introduction we suggest you refer to the generic API documentation instead.

template: @flourish/table

version: 5

Template data

There are two different formats in which you can supply data to this template. Which one will be more convenient for you likely depends on the source of your data, as described below.

Array of objects with arbitrary keys, and a bindings object

This format is most likely useful when you have data from an external source, such as CSV data loaded from d3-dsv. You should supply this attached to the opts.data, which might look like:

    {
        rows: [
            { "RowsHeader1": ..., "RowsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "RowsHeader1": ..., "RowsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "RowsHeader1": ..., "RowsHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }

... but with the keys being the column headers from your source data instead. To tell the API how these values from each column should be associated with the keys that the template is expecting, you must also supply an object attached to opts.bindings. (The meanings of the keys in the bindings object are documented below.) The minimal bindings you can supply for this template are as shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/table",
    version: "5",
    bindings: {
        rows: {
            
        }
    },
    data: {
        rows: [
            { "RowsHeader1": ..., "RowsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "RowsHeader1": ..., "RowsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "RowsHeader1": ..., "RowsHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

All possible bindings that you can supply are shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/table",
    version: "5",
    bindings: {
        rows: {
            columns: ["RowsHeader1", "RowsHeader2", ...]
        }
    },
    data: {
        rows: [
            { "RowsHeader1": ..., "RowsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "RowsHeader1": ..., "RowsHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "RowsHeader1": ..., "RowsHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

(As before, the keys containing "Header" would be replaced by column names from your data source.)

Array of objects with template-defined keys

There is an alternative format you can use, which is likely to be easier to use if your data is not from a spreadsheet source. With this alternative format you supply your data to the template as an array of objects, attached to opts.data, where the keys must be those used by the template, as documented below. In this case there is no need to supply a bindings object, since the key names are already those expected by the template. The required properties in the data object are as follows (scroll down for a description of what each property is):

{
template: "@flourish/table",
version: "5",
data: {
    rows: [
        {
            columns: [...]
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

And the full list of all possible properties is as follows:

{
template: "@flourish/table",
version: "5",
data: {
    rows: [
        {
            columns: [...]
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}
