Vue3 component

Vue.js is a front-end Javascript framework that is widely used for creating reactive web-applications. It is consistently one of the most popular frameworks around, and in this post I will introduce a the datatables.net-vue3 package that provides DataTables for use as a component in Vue3 applications.

Want to dive right into the code with some examples? This is a coding blog, of course you do! The following examples show DataTables being used in a Vue3 application on Stackblitz which allows us to run an entire Node.js based app. The examples use Vue3's composition API and Vite for the build process.

RequireJS anyone?

RequireJS is, in web-terms, an old technology now (some might say ancient), but it is still in wide use and there have been a number of questions about RequireJS and DataTables recently. Something I've wanted to do for a long time is create a single definition file that can be used to load in any DataTables extension with whatever styling library you are using. So finally, it is time to dust off the AMD loader skills and get it done!

DataTables 1.12

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of DataTables 1.12. This is an incremental upgrade, modernising many parts of our default styling and significantly improving internationalisation abilities.

As a quick run down, in this post I will introduce the following enhancements in DataTables:

  • Built in date / time rendering and ordering
  • Automatic locale rendering for numbers
  • Ordering style improvements
  • Row colouring improvements

With this release of DataTables we have also updated all of our extensions to ensure full compatibility, make their new features available and address known issues. Please see the end of this post for links to the full release notes for all released software.

Additionally, this release spells the end of our IE6 and IE7 support for DataTables. While the Javascript hasn't had its support hacks for those browsers removed yet (and won't be until DataTables 2), so it will continue to largely work in them, any CSS hacks for these legacy browsers have now been removed so we only distribute fully valid CSS.

Let's see DataTables 1.12 in action - it will immediately be familiar to anyone who has used DataTables before:
