You can find the full list of links that you can include from CDN, depending on the version of dhtmlxGantt in a separate article.

Download the Package

GPL version

Download the package of dhtmlxGantt GPL version.

PRO version

If you have the Commercial or Enterprise license, you need to go to the Client Area and download the PRO package from there.

Independent of the version, unpack the downloaded package into a folder of your project. Then include dhtmlxgantt.js and dhtmlxgantt.css files into a page. Make sure that you set correct relative paths to these files:

<script type="text/javascript" src="codebase/dhtmlxgantt.js"></script>  
<link rel="stylesheet" href="codebase/dhtmlxgantt.css">

Adding PRO Edition into Project

All public sources (CDN, NuGet, Bower, and npm) contain a Stardard edition of the component, which is distributed under the GPL license. Currently we don't have corresponding private servers from where the Professional version of the component can be installed. There are two possible ways out:

  • you can add the Pro version to your project by hand.
  • you can install the Pro version to your project via npm from a local directory.

If case of npm, you can install the Pro package from a local folder using npm install ./local_path or npm link. There are step-by-step instructions for both variants:

npm install

  1. Copy the Gantt package into some local directory.
  2. Go to your project directory.
  3. Call npm install ../gantt-local-package-path.

npm link

  1. Copy the Gantt package into some local directory.
  2. Call npm link in the package folder.
  3. Go to your project directory.
  4. Call npm link dhtmlx-gantt.
