If you are one of the millions of people that have a blog, writing your articles just got a lot easier. Extentech just announced Sheetster, the open source web spreadsheet can be used to embed spreadsheets and spreadsheet data, such as charts, graphs and formulas into blog articles.

This new feature includes the ability to embed charts, graphs, formula cells or the entire spreadsheet into any blog or website. Users now can upload their spreadsheets to Sheetster.com and acquire a piece of code to embed in their blogs. This feature is similar to the embed feature on YouTube, and contains privacy controls such as groups sharing, public and private permissions.

Bloggers no longer have spend extra time creating charts and graphs to upload to their blog, now they can reference any part of their spreadsheet and display it in their blog article. With a familiar spreadsheet interface, users will be accustomed to the functions and features of this open source web spreadsheet application. In addition to the embedding feature, users can upload, edit, share and collaborate with their spreadsheet data.

"We built Sheetster from the ground up to be an embeddable, customizable open source docs platform. With a single click, any spreadsheet can be repurposed online as an HTML table or embedded grid control. Charts, tables, and images can then be extracted and embedded in any web page. These compelling information graphics stay synchronized with data changes to the spreadsheet residing on the server, making maintenance and updates a breeze. Everyone will appreciate that Sheetster is pure HTML and works great on mobile devices, and in any modern browser. Sheetster is a serious win for customers and content creators that want to securely leverage data from their docs and present real-time information-intensive content online using a familiar spreadsheet interface." states John McMahon, CEO, Extentech Inc.

Sheetster is part of the DocsFree.org project, a brand new open source docs platform community being launched in August 2010. DocsFree.org is committed to creating the best docs application platform on earth, while providing the flexibility and choice of open source. Because it is open source, it can run behind the firewall, and developers can extend and embed the code based on their project requirements.
