That allows downloads of your datatable with composer http://getcomposer.org/
Added composer support
Not that I don't support easy dependency management, but I can't just keep adding more files for the various package managers. Sorry.
I saw that twitter/bootstrap used it as well.
I personally use it to download the repository. After downloading I merge all the js files I need from various projects and minify them into one file.
Composer works even without this composer.json but it makes it a bit easier. It's okay for me, just close the request then if you like.
Perhaps following suit of the package manager files that Bootstrap uses is a good idea. component.json, composer.json and package.json. I'll need to add a datatables.jquery.json file at some point soon as well...
Hi, there is still no package for composer?
See here: https://github.com/DataTables/DataTables/pull/231 . Short answer, yes, there is - now :-)
@DataTables Great, thank you :}
