Is there a plugin or something equivalent to Tablepress (WordPress) for Craft?

I have some large Excel table containing product pricings amongst other things, that I would like to import into Craft and manage there.

How do you plan to manage it in Craft?

If you want each row as a separate entry, create a section to hold the data, setup the fields you want to use to match each column, then use Bob Olde Hampsink's import plugin to bring in the data. The plugin allows you to map the data to the fields in Craft.

Craft supports tables natively but you need a way to import them. You can use Bob's import plugin but you'll need to use the plugin's hooks to get the data where you want it. Tables in Craft are stored as JSON so you have to do some data wresting.

  • Thank you for your answer. I'm trying out Craft to see if I can migrate over to it from a current Wordpress system. And managing external tables of data is one of the last remaining issues. If you look at the screenshots here, ideally thats the way I would like to manage it. Each table is then accessed in the templates like an object, where all table data can easily be parsed in whatever way is needed. I will check out the resources you provided. – silverdrive Nov 6 '15 at 7:22

How about this one? It's a table field type.

  • I saw that one, thanks. But I don't see SuperTable supporting import of CSV files. I have 3-400 rows of data coming from Excel, that need to be uploaded in Craft admin in some way. – silverdrive Nov 5 '15 at 14:18
