DataTables CDN

The DataTables Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a permanent store of the software released as part of the DataTables project for you to use on your site without needing to host it yourself.

Furthermore, the CDN can serve the files for the DataTables components and dependencies that you require as a single concatenated and minified file, or as individual files through use of the DataTables download builder.

All you then need to do is include the files you want on your page! This can help improve performance on your site and make prototyping much easier.

The DataTables CDN is powered by the CloudFlare network.

Buttons

The Buttons extension for DataTables provides a common set of options, API methods and styling to display buttons on a page that will interact with a DataTable. The core library provides the based framework upon which plug-ins can built. Plug-in buttons are also provided for data export, printing and column visibility control.

JS

Buttons also provides the following files that provide functional buttons. Please note that the HTML5 export buttons require JSZip and PDFMake in order to operate.

FixedHeader

Scroller

A virtual renderer for DataTables, allowing the table to look like it scrolls for the full data set, but actually only drawing the rows required for the current display, for fast operation.

CSS
JS

Select

Select is an extension for DataTables that provides table item selection capabilities - rows, columns and cells. Advanced selection options are available for multi-item selection and also item selection and retrieval via the DataTables API.

CSS
JS

Plugins

There DataTables plug-ins are a little different from the software above in that they do not have a specific release. Rather, for the CDN, each commit is available using the initial part of the git hash for each commit, to ensure that the version of the file that you use is always available for your use and will not change version unexpectedly.

Furthermore, note that the use of plug-ins on the CDN is primarily for prototyping. Although you can include plug-ins on your page directly from the CDN, if you are using multiple plug-ins, you will benefit from combining those plug-ins that you are using into a single file to keep the number of imported files to a minimum.
