There are a lot of third-party modules out there for Angular, and even more plugins and extensions for those modules.
But even with such a great ecosystem, you won’t always find the functionality that you need.
If you’ve done web development for any length of time I’m sure you’ve had to write your own extensions, or modify someone’s module to fit your needs. Writing those things from scratch can be a real bear, much less adding things like tests or a reliable build system.
And what if you want to share your finished product with others? It’s probably twice as much work if you want nice, clean documentation and usable demos.
I wanted to lower the barrier of entry for you and get you on your way to writing any UI-Grid plugin you want with a minimum of fuss. I would bet that you (yes you) have some great ideas. Why should you have to spend a ton of time building all the little non-plugin parts around your plugin before you actually build and share your plugin?
Answer: you don’t have to.
