What is your Tech Stack?

In our back-end we used PHP7 and Phalcon framework. For our databases we used MySQL and for the search Elasticsearch. We built our front-end with ReactJS and the smart contract for the token distribution using the Ethereum platform.

For creating the tables we used the community edition of Handsontables — a JavaScript/HTML5 Spreadsheet Component for Web Apps — which is available on Git.


What are tags?

Tags are a way to categorize your content, so that others can find it. The more relevant the tags are to the post, the more like-minded people will come across it.


Does it cost anything to post, comment, or vote?

No. It is free to contribute on SpreadShare.co. You might even get paid for it!


Can I earn money on SpreadShare?

Yes, by contributing to our community.


Can I sell data on SpreadShare?

Yes, in the near future we allow users to create private tables which users wanting to access have to pay for. Downloading tables, getting access to a table’s API and requesting table data will be other features a user can use the tokens for.


Why did we decide to replace Google sheets with our own table solution?

  • Sheets don’t allow you to build an audience, can’t be followed or subscribed
  • Sheets don’t provide page and user stats
  • User roles in sheets are designed for organisations, not communities.
  • Sheets can’t be monetised.
  • Sheets don’t foster real collaboration
  • Sheets don’t acknowledge the creators
  • Sheets can’t be searched or discovered.
  • Sheets can’t be rated or reviewed.
  • Sheets don’t like to be searched / indexed.
  • Sheets are not linking to, interacting with each other. Every sheet behaves like an own platform, there are no intersections, connections to other sheets.
  • Sheets don’t offer a clean visual experience

How can I create a table

What are locations

Tables can be set to specific locations. Tables are a great way to collect local information like venues, places, people or meetup’s in a city. Filtering by location let’s you explore local content.
