With Tabulizer you can enter the table data manually, or read them from one of the following sources:

  • An external file (Excel, CSV, HTML, XML, text)
  • A database query (which can a database table or something more complicated). The database can be the internal site db, or an external one.
  • A Joomla article/Wordpress post (so many people can add/modify data on the same table)
  • A webpage (so you can extract data from a specific table from another website!)
  • An RSS feed (RSS 2.0 or Atom)
  • A JSON feed

Regardless of the data source, the resulting table could be either static or dynamic.

  • Static table: When the table is created statically, it can be edited like a regular HTML table using the editor of your platform. You can also, re-Tabulize the table if you prefer to use the built-in Tabulizer's editor, instead of the CMS (Joomla, Wordpress, etc) editor.
  • Dynamic table: Apart from the static tables in which you convert your input data into a regular HTML table, you may choose to create a dynamic table in which the table changes every time the data source that is linked to is modified. There is also a cache mechanism to improve performance.
