JSON to HTML Table

This is a simple script to convert JSON data to standard HTML table in the simplest and fastest way.

How to use

There's only one function in this library and accept four parameter that only the first one is required.

    function ConvertJsonToTable(parsedJson, tableId, tableClassName, linkText)

Simply call ConvertJsonToTable method and fill the parsedJson parameter.

Example

This is an example of using this library:

    //Example data, Object 
    var objectArray = [{
        "Total": "34",
        "Version": "1.0.4",
        "Office": "New York"
    }, {
        "Total": "67",
        "Version": "1.1.0",
        "Office": "Paris"
    }];

    //Example data, Array
    var stringArray = ["New York", "Berlin", "Paris", "Marrakech", "Moscow"];

    //Example data, nested Object. This data will create nested table also.
    var nestedTable = [{
        key1: "val1",
        key2: "val2",
        key3: {
            tableId: "tblIdNested1",
            tableClassName: "clsNested",
            linkText: "Download",
            data: [{
                subkey1: "subval1",
                subkey2: "subval2",
                subkey3: "subval3"
            }]
        }
    }];

Code sample to create a HTML table from JSON:

    //Only first parameter is required
    var jsonHtmlTable = ConvertJsonToTable(objectArray, 'jsonTable', null, 'Download');

Code sample explaned:

  • First parameter is JSON data
  • table HTML id attribute will be jsonTable
  • table HTML class attribute will not be added
  • Download text will be displayed instead of the link itself
