As of today, ag-Grid is providing financial backing to help Plunker and say thanks!

Why Plunker?

Many of you will already be using Plunker, it’s the best tool to prototype, experiment, share and debug your ideas on the web platform. From idea to implementation, Plunker helps you build something quickly and frictionlessly. It’s our tool of choice for examples in our documentation. We also use it extensively when delivering support to our customers.

At the end of last year, we got in contact with Geoff Goodman, creator of Plunker, and we quickly found common ground. This led to us providing support for Geoff and his team. As Geoff says:

“We are really excited to be working with ag-Grid. With their regular support, we can drive exciting new and improved experiences for the users of the Plunker platform.”

It’s important to us that we give back to the community which supported us in our early days. Projects such as Plunker provide an amazing service at no charge so it’s only fair that they are compensated for their time and effort.

About ag-Grid


At ag-Grid, our mission is simple: Build the best datagrid in the world. Born out of frustration with existing solutions, ag-Grid evolved from a side project to becoming the leading JavaScript datagrid on the market. We are a company built by developers for developers. True to these roots, we offer ag-Grid Free: an open-source project that delivers world class grid performance. You can use this entirely free under MIT license.

ag-Grid Enterprise is our commercially-licensed offering which has enjoyed widespread adoption and drives us to keep delivering on our mission. You can take a free trial to see if it fits your needs.

Corporate ‘Open-Source’ Social Responsibility

We first came up with the concept of Corporate ‘Open-Source’ Social Responsibility through our support of webpack. In that blog post, we hoped that we could continue this initiative and we’re delighted to have found another worthy recipient of our support. We love Plunker, it saves us lots of time and is a great product.

We also love the idea of giving back, we’ll be on the lookout for other projects that fit with our vision. We strongly enourage you to do the same at your company.

The latest update of the grid is out now.
