Latest Stable Version Build Status license

PHP Library to handle server-side processing for Datatables, in a fast and simple way. Live Demo

  • Editable columns with a closure function.
  • Supports custom filters.
  • Can handle most complicated queries.
  • Supports mysql and sqlite for native php.
  • Works with :

Installation

NOTE: version 2.0+ requires php 7.1.3+ (php supported versions)

The recommended way to install the library is with Composer

If you haven't started using composer, I highly recommend you to use it.

Put a file named composer.json at the root of your project, containing this information:

{
    "require": {
       "ozdemir/datatables": "2.*"
    }
}

And then run:

composer install

Or just run :

composer require ozdemir/datatables

Add the autoloader to your project:

    <?php

    require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';

You're now ready to begin using the Datatables php library.

    <?php
    require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';

    use Ozdemir\Datatables\Datatables;
    use Ozdemir\Datatables\DB\MySQL;

    $config = [ 'host'     => 'localhost',
                'port'     => '3306',
                'username' => 'homestead',
                'password' => 'secret',
                'database' => 'sakila' ];

    $dt = new Datatables( new MySQL($config) );

    $dt->query('Select film_id, title, description from film');

    echo $dt->generate();

Methods

This is the list of available public methods.

query($query) required

  • sets the sql query

generate() required

  • runs the queries and build outputs
  • returns the output as json
  • same as generate()->toJson()

toJson()

  • returns the output as json
  • should be called after generate()

toArray()

  • returns the output as array
  • should be called after generate()

add($column, function( $row ){})

  • adds extra columns for custom usage

edit($column, function($row){})

  • allows column editing

filter($column, function(){})

  • allows custom filtering
  • it has the methods below
    • escape($value)
    • searchValue()
    • defaultFilter()
    • between($low, $high)
    • whereIn($array)
    • greaterThan($value)
    • lessThan($value)

hide($columns)

  • removes the column from output
  • It is useful when you only need to use the data in add() or edit() methods.

setDistinctResponseFrom($column)

  • executes the query with the given column name and adds the returned data to the output with the distinctData key.

setDistinctResponse($output)

  • adds the given data to the output with the distinctData key.

getColumns()

  • returns column names (for dev purpose)

getQuery()

  • returns the sql query string that is created by the library (for dev purpose)

Example

    <?php
    require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';

    use Ozdemir\Datatables\Datatables;
    use Ozdemir\Datatables\DB\SQLite;

    $path = __DIR__ . '/../path/to/database.db';
    $dt = new Datatables( new SQLite($path) );

    $dt->query('Select id, name, email, age, address, plevel from users');

    $dt->edit('id', function($data){
        // return a link.
        return "<a href='user.php?id=" . $data['id'] . "'>edit</a>";
    });

    $dt->edit('email', function($data){
        // masks email : mail@mail.com => m***@mail.com
        return preg_replace('/(?<=.).(?=.*@)/u','*', $data['email']);
    });

    $dt->edit('address', function($data){
        // checks user access.
        $current_user_plevel = 4;
        if ($current_user_plevel > 2 && $current_user_plevel > $data['plevel']) {
            return $data['address'];
        }

        return 'you are not authorized to view this column';
    });
    
    $dt->hide('plevel'); // hides 'plevel' column from the output

    $dt->add('action', function($data){
        // returns a link in a new column
        return "<a href='user.php?id=" . $data['id'] . "'>edit</a>";
    });

    $dt->filter('age', function (){
        // applies custom filtering.
        return $this->between(15, 30);
    });

    echo $dt->generate()->toJson(); // same as 'echo $dt->generate()';

Road Map

  • better test suites for each class
  • improve integrations for php frameworks

Requirements

Composer
DataTables > 1.10
PHP > 7.1.3
