jQuery table formatting plugin for decimal alignment and other prettifying of table columns.

Features

Transform hard-to-compare right-aligned numeric tables:

to easier to read:

Center based on characters besides a decimal separator:

Scientific tables can be much improved:

Usage

  <script type="text/javascript" src=".../jquery...min.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src=".../jquery.align-column.js"></script>

To align numeric columns of an HTML table, use:

  $('table').alignColumn(3); // column index

Multiple columns can be aligned at once:

  $('table').alignColumn([4,5]);

By default, columns are aligned by the decimal point (or a best guess as to where it is). To center by some other character or characters:

  $('table').alignColumn(2, {center: ':'});
