Responsive HTML Tables
FooTable transforms your HTML tables into expandable responsive tables. It hides certain columns of data at different resolutions (we call these breakpoints). Rows become expandable to show the data that was hidden.
Play around with the responsive demo to see it in action.
Easily add sorting capabilities to the data contained within your table columns. With the click of a button, you can sort each column alphabetically, or even by date, status, and more.
Add a search box to your tables to allow your users to drill down to the data they need. Search all your table columns at once, whether the data is hidden from view or not.
We work with the concepts of “breakpoints”, which are different device widths we care about. Depending on the markup you use, you can define what columns in your table will be hidden when the screen width is below 320 (or whatever breakpoint width you set).
Config via Data Attributes
One of the main goals of FooTable was to make it completely configurable via data attributes inside the table. We wanted you to be able to look at the HTML markup and see exactly how the FooTable was going to function. Take a look at the markup on the Docs page to see how it’s done.
