Welcome to Grist!#
Grist is a software product to organize, analyze, and share data.
Grist combines the best of spreadsheets and databases. Even our name reflects this: “Grist” is made of “grid” (as of spreadsheet cells) and “list” (as of database records). Of course, real-world problems go beyond simple grids and lists, and Grist is at its best when data gets more complex.
