DataTables Plugin For Grails
This plugin allows you to quickly add feature-rich tables to your Grails application. It uses the excellent DataTables plugin for jQuery created by SpryMedia Ltd.
This plugin provides the following components to your application:
- A controller and services that provide data for the table.
- An extensible reporting system.
There are several ways you can add data to your table:
- You can add the data directly to your GSP.
- You can pass in a list of objects that you generate in your controller.
- You can pass in the name of a domain class.
When you pass in the name of a domain class, the plugin will list the objects of that domain class in your table. You can set criteria to allow only a subset of the objects to appear, and you can also choose to have the table only download one page of objects at a time in order to prevent downloading more than is necessary.
