Many moons ago, I helped write the docs for TableSorter, a jQuery plugin for sorting HTML tables. It was last updated in 2008 but it’s as useful today as it was then. Thankfully, Rob Garrison has been making significant updates to it on GitHub. Importantly, he’s also brought in and radically improved one of my favorite widgets for Grouping. This lets you click a header and see collapsible groups. While the old widget was pretty limited, Rob has gone wild with this one giving you all kind of formatting capability over how the groups are formed and titled.
Two huge thumbs up: take a look at this jQuery table grouping demo.
If you’re using TableSorter 2.0.3 or 2.0.5 from 2008, take a look at Rob’s version today.
