Jquery DataTable or Js-Grid RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-286291038 posted

    I am trying to choose a table grid for my project. I found two plugins which seems to offer a lot of features that will help in my project.

    1. Jquery Datatable  (https://datatables.net/)
    2. js-grid (http://js-grid.com/)

    Both seems great with a lot of documentations and examples.

    Wondering if anyone who has used these plugins can advise if any of the above plugins has an edge over the other that can help me choose?

    Datatables.net is much more robust, is very well documented, and has a very active support community.

    Hi Nataraj Gandhi Arunachalam,

    DataTables is a plug-in for the jQuery Javascript library.

    jsGrid is a lightweight client-side data grid control based on jQuery.

    Both of them could do the same things like inserting, filtering, editing, deleting, paging, and sorting.

    But as ryanbesko has mentioned, Datatable is more popular.

    It has better documentation, better community support and it was more straightforward to start and use this plugin.

    Best Regards,

    Jenifer

    Datatables has been around longer and is more popular, but as the name suggests, jsgrid is lighter (9k vs 56k). Picking a grid will depend on the feature set you desire, and how close the grids implementation is to the desired implementation.
