#ractive-datatable

Demo

Live Demo

Install

npm install ractive-datatable --save

Features

  • Minimal (3.45kb gzipped including styles, 1.71kb without)
  • Well designed default styling
  • Cell Editing
  • Pagination (incl. navigation buttons)
  • Filtering (with sexy highlights)
  • Sorting
  • Per-cell partials (new!)
  • Selection (new!) (wip!)

Usage

Add the datatable to your Ractive instance:

Ractive.extend({
    ...
    components: {
        datatable: require('ractive-datatable')
    },
    ...
});

Use it

<datatable data='{{data}}' on-edit='dataedited' config='{{config}}' filter='{{filter}}'></datatable>

Includes minimal styling under the class .ractive-datatable. Styles are included in the javascript and added to the page on load. If you don't want these styles in the javascript, require() src/datatable.js and handle the styles as needed.

To use a specific partial for a cell, create an inline partial expression inside the tag of the component:

<datatable data='{{data}}' on-edit='dataedited' config='{{config}}' filter='{{filter}}'>
    {{#partial timestamp}}
        {{ moment(this).fromNow() }}
    {{/partial}}
</datatable>

Will render every row in the "timestamp" column with the passed in partial (in this case formatting the timestamp using moment.js).

API

Properties

data

Array of Objects where each key is a column

editable

globally allow/disallow editing

filter

A string to filter the rows on. Searches through all cells with a case-insensitive RegEx and displays only rows that match. Cells with matches are highlighted.

dynamicColumns

If true (default), searches the entire data array looking for columns. If false, columns must be explicitly provided through the columns property. If you have a large number of rows this should be turned off for performance, but you will have to explicitly provide columns via the columns object.

columns

Determines the ordering of the columns and configuration for specific columns.

Each key on this object refers to column names. Configurable properties are edit, display, header & order. Key/column names are case-sensitive.

Example:

columns: {
    'name': {order: 0}, // `order` "bumps" the column, lowest value is left most. 
    'created': {edit: false},
    'someAnnoyinglyNamedThingFromThatCoworkerThatDrivesYouNuts': {header: 'Nicer Name'},
    'id': {edit: false},
    'hiddenField': {display: false},
    'anotherHidden': false, //shorthand for { display: false }
    'someOtherColumn': {order: 3},
}

If dynamicColumns is false, only columns configured here will display.

selectionMode

Either row or cell (WIP). Allows for rows to be selected on click

selection

An array of the currently selected objects from data

page

The current page

lastPage (readonly)

The last page or total number of pages

sortOn

Name of column to sort

sortMode

Either 'asc' or 'desc'

Methods

previousPage()

Go to the previous page

nextPage()

Go to the next page

gotoPage(page)

Go to the specified page

Events

edit: Dispatched when an edit is made. Sends the entire row and the field that is edited (useful for extracting specific information from the row that changed).

this.on('dataedited', function(row, field) {
    
    var change = {};
    change.id = row.id;
    change[field] = row[field];
    
    changes.push(change);
    
});

For other events you probably would be better off using Ractive's observers on your datatable instance and the property you want.

Open to PRs and stuff. I'm around.
