Github fork of Christian Bach's tablesorter plugin + awesomeness ~
JavaScript CSS HTML

tablesorter (FORK) is a jQuery plugin for turning a standard HTML table with THEAD and TBODY tags into a sortable table without page refreshes. tablesorter can successfully parse and sort many types of data including linked data in a cell. This forked version adds lots of new enhancements including: alphanumeric sorting, pager callback functons, multiple widgets providing column styling, ui theme application, sticky headers, column filters and resizer, as well as extended documentation with a lot more demos.

Bower Version NPM Version devDependency Status zenhub-image


  • Because of the change to the internal cache, the tablesorter v2.16+ core, filter widget and pager (both plugin & widget) will only work with the same version or newer files.




  • Multi-column alphanumeric sorting and filtering.
  • Multi-tbody sorting - see the options table on the main document page.
  • Supports Bootstrap v2 and 3
  • Parsers for sorting text, alphanumeric text, URIs, integers, currency, floats, IP addresses, dates (ISO, long and short formats) & time. Add your own easily.
  • Inline editing - see demo
  • Support for ROWSPAN and COLSPAN on TH elements.
  • Support secondary "hidden" sorting (e.g., maintain alphabetical sort when sorting on other criteria).
  • Extensibility via widget system.
  • Cross-browser: IE 6.0+, FF 2+, Safari 2.0+, Opera 9.0+, Chrome 5.0+.
  • Small code size, starting at 25K minified
  • Works with jQuery 1.2.6+ (jQuery 1.4.1+ needed with some widgets).
  • Works with jQuery 1.9+ ($.browser.msie was removed; needed in the original version).
