RailsTables: A clean jQuery datatables DSL

RailsTables is a simple DSL built on top of jquery-datatables-rails to quickly compose performant jQuery datatables for your Rails app. It is inspired by, and was born as an abstraction of, the pattern used in Ryan Bates's datatables Railscast. It's powered by the indomitable ActiveRecord extension Squeel.

Future Versions:

  • 0.8.0:
    • Batch action columns
    • Aggregation columns
  • 0.9.0:
    • Somehow support conditional columns
    • Datatable.render in views to generate all html that honors conditional columns, searchable/sortable th's, user-defined css
  • 1.0.0: Initial public release with testing and in-depth documentation
  • 1.1.0 and up: You tell me!
