JavaScript List – Webix List

JavaScript List – Webix List

Webix List is a JavaScript widget that distinctly presents listed data items. It performs exceptionally well with thousands of data records and supports single and multiple selections of list items. List also enables you to make all possible CRUD operations with the data inserted into the widget.

Webix List

The Webix library offers three variations of list apart from the standard one:

  • grouplist;
  • x-list;
  • unitlist.


Grouplist allows presenting data in a list in which items are grouped categorically. Data grouping is hierarchical, meaning any group item can start its own group. Moreover you can effortlessly sort and filter all Grouplist items.

This UI-related JavaScript pagelist presents an offbeat way of data presentation. While all lists arrange items vertically, X-list offers horizontal patterning while keeping all the standard list’s functions.

Unitlist enables the presentation of data in groups derived from initial non-hierarchical datasets. With this UI widget, data items are sorted and then united by common values. Unitlist helps you to cope with a large amount of messy information by organizing it into small groups.
