# Steps for usage

# First step

There are two ways to introduce dependencies


<link rel='stylesheet' href='https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/luckysheet/dist/plugins/css/pluginsCss.css' />
<link rel='stylesheet' href='https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/luckysheet/dist/plugins/plugins.css' />
<link rel='stylesheet' href='https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/luckysheet/dist/css/luckysheet.css' />
<link rel='stylesheet' href='https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/luckysheet/dist/assets/iconfont/iconfont.css' />
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/luckysheet/dist/plugins/js/plugin.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/luckysheet/dist/luckysheet.umd.js"></script>

Note that the path of https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/luckysheet/dist/luckysheet.umd.js means that the latest luckysheet code will be pulled, but if Luckysheet has just been released, the jsdelivr website may not have time Synchronize from npm, so using this path will still pull to the previous version. We recommend that you directly specify the latest version.

To specify the Luckysheet version, please add the version number after all CDN dependent files, such as: https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/luckysheet@2.1.12/dist/luckysheet.umd.js.

How do I know which version is the latest version? View the latest release record (opens new window) or package.json (opens new window)version field.

If it is not convenient to access jsdelivr.net, you can also import it locally

# Import locally

After npm run build, all files in the dist folder are copied to the project directory

<link rel='stylesheet' href='./plugins/css/pluginsCss.css' />
<link rel='stylesheet' href='./plugins/plugins.css' />
<link rel='stylesheet' href='./css/luckysheet.css' />
<link rel='stylesheet' href='./assets/iconfont/iconfont.css' />
<script src="./plugins/js/plugin.js"></script>
<script src="./luckysheet.umd.js"></script>

# Second step

Specify a table container

<div id="luckysheet" style="margin:0px;padding:0px;position:absolute;width:100%;height:100%;left: 0px;top: 0px;"></div>

# Third step

Create a table

    $(function () {
        //Configuration item
        var options = {
            container: 'luckysheet' //luckysheet is the container id

# Structure

# Format

The data format of a complete Luckysheet table file is: luckysheetfile, a table file contains several sheet files, corresponding to excel sheet0, sheet1, etc.

An example of a Luckysheet file is as follows, the table contains 3 sheets:luckysheetfile = [{sheet1 settings}, {sheet2 settings}, {sheet3 settings}] Equivalent to 3 sheets of excel
