Hurray! New Rails digest arrived at the beginning of winter. It is likely, you heard of some open source projects, we share today, before. But it is also for sure, that some other of them from this list is a surprise for you. The worst thing about software development that you can’t use all of the cool tools you know. But more you know – the better solution you can find in future. In this ‘Monthly trending Ruby on Rails repositories. December, 5’ digest you will meet error monitoring for Rails, Vue on Rails gem, publishing framework, DB schema managing tool, carpooling platform, Vim config for Rails and many other awesome repositories!
Hey! Glad to see you again! Remember how in the previous parts of this tutorial we added DataTables plug-in to Rails application and set up static and Ajax-sourced tables? In this last part, we’re going to set up another table and get familiar with Server-side processing.
Howdy! Today we’re gonna continue with our tutorial. This time we’ll talk about DataTables plug-in and Ajax-sourced tables. I thought you’d like to see some real-life examples of using DataTables, so let’s take a close look at how we can deal with serving tables with datasets provided by Ajax request.
In the previous part of this tutorial, we did an overview of DataTables plug-in and its main features. As you have already learned with DataTables, your static table instantly gets pagination, sorting by columns and search. After the table is initialized, all the things including the search work fast and smooth.
