Development Update: Basic user interactions implemented for Stencila Sheets


Over in “A feature list for Stencila Sheets” we identified feature zero: “0. Conventional spreadsheet features that Stencila Sheets will have!” A quick update on that…

@oliver has been making good progress on this including:

  • insert/delete rows/columns
  • copy and paste from plain text & Google Sheets
  • efficient scrolling and rendering of the sheet grid over numbers of row

Check out the screenshots below. While these features are very basic, fundamental features that you expect in a spreadsheet, it’s really important that they are setup up right from the start.

We’ll be looking for feedback on the more advanced features of Stencila Sheets in the coming weeks.
