Plone Integration of jquery.dataTables plugin

Project description


DataTables is a plug-in for the jQuery Javascript library. It is a highly flexible tool, based upon the principle of progressive enhancement, which will add advanced interaction controls to any HTML table.

This version includes datatables 1.8.1 without the examples available in the source distribution of the plugin. It is provided with an @@example.datatables view.


A genericsetup profile is provided to add jquery.dataTables to portal_javascript in a non-minified version with compression option set to safe.

The example view works without Plone integration (just by calling resources).
