How to build a calories widget with Excel?
The calories widget is developed in an Excel spreadsheet and then converted into a web application using Appizy. Here are the steps. You can find the file “Meal calculator” file in the Sample page of Appizy converter.
In this calories calculator we use Data Validity of the cells. This creates a dropdown selection that Appizy will convert as a dropdown menu in the final web calculator.
We also manage data in a separate hidden tab.
In Appizy we choose the following conversion settings:
Content & Layout > App layout: Fluid (requires PRO or PLUS), so our app will fit the parent content.
Content & Layout > Tabs > None (requires PRO or PLUS), as our app has only one tab, there is no need to keep the upper navigation.
Your spreadsheet becomes an application!
