Hi everyone,


I'm starting a new project which is to build a web application with functionalities similar to google sheets.


I wanted to get som advice/tips on resources or ideas of how I would build something like this.


So the web app would be similar to google sheets in the sense that it has cells and you can input text, but it wouldn't have the more complex functionalities like macros and formulas. I just want to build a spreadsheet that would allow me to track job applications - however I'd like to build it instead of using google sheets or a spreadsheet because I want to be able to add functionalities that would be useful for making job applications.


The main question I have is: how would I go about replicating the cells that you see in goolge sheet and excel? Is there some sort of API I use? Do use like a table to do this? I would really appreciate any advice on this point specifically!


Apologies for the long post and many thanks in advance for any help provided!
