What can this extension do?
Adds the DataTables extension for jQuery to MediaWiki using the ResourceLoader. This extension is a thin wrapper around the jQuery library written by Allan Jardine; it is meant to provide the DataTables library for developers and is not intended to be a feature for wiki-users to use.
To use this library in your custom MediaWiki extension, define
ext.datatables as a dependency when registering your ResourceLoader module. That's it! MediaWiki will take care of the rest. You can go ahead and use the library right away. Like so:
$( '#example' ).dataTable();
Please see the excellent documentation of DataTables at http://datatables.net/. There are many examples and this code is quite flexible.
You can install this extension by cloning the Github repository or by downloading a ZIP file from Github and installing it manually. (See below.) Once you have the code in place, add the following to LocalSettings.php:
# DataTables require_once( "$IP/extensions/DataTables/DataTables.php" );
Installing with git
From the command-line, clone the github repository into your
extensions/ directory, like so:
$ git clone https://github.com/bluecurio/mediawiki-extension-datatables extensions/DataTables
Installing as a ZIP
If you don't have
git installed on your computer, please follow the following directions:
- Browse to https://github.com/bluecurio/mediawiki-extension-datatables
- Find the button that says "Download ZIP" and click it
- Download the ZIP file and put it on your computer in your Mediawiki's
- Unzip it
- Rename the folder to
The http://datatables.net/ website is a wonderful resource for learning to use the jQuery library. I highly recommend having a look at the examples and reading through the configuration settings.
