Sheetsee.js is a client-side library for connecting Google Spreadsheets to a website and visualizing the information in tables and maps.
Google Spreadsheets can be used as simple and collaborative databases, they make getting a data driven site going much easier than traditional databases. Read more about using spreadsheets for databases.
Each of Sheetsee’s functions are divided into modules. Use just the parts you need; see docs on building. If you don’t want to build your own, you can just use the full library which includes all modules, it’s here on GitHub.
