View Full Version : HTML table generator

04-13-2012, 07:28 AM

Making a table for tabular data with custom rowspan and colspan can sometimes cause headache. I decided to create small free online HTML table generator http://html-tables.com/ that has cell selection and merge just like in MS word or Open-office Writer. You can also add text to the cells and it will generate nice clean HTML code. Any feedback would be appreciated.

That could be useful. However, to actually be useful it should offer a few more semantic options like header cells (horizontal and vertical), row and column groups, etc.

You are missing half the tags that a table should have - <thead> <tbody> <tfoot> <colgroup> <col> <caption> etc.

Take a look at the simple table generator I wrote back in June 2008 that included all these essential tags - http://javascript.about.com/library/bltablegen.htm

I would add a ton of more options to it, because tables are incredibly easy

Thank you very much for the feedback. In current version I focused on easy cell selection, merge and clean code. In next revision I make I will focus on performance, other table related HTML options and CSS styles.
