Version 2.12 Out Now!

An easy to use interactive table generation plugin for JQuery UI

Full documentation & demos can be found at:

Tabluator Table


Tabulator allows you to create interactive tables in seconds from any HTML Table, Javascript Array or JSON formatted data.

Simply include the library and the css in your JQuery UI project and you're away!

Tabulator is packed with useful features including:

Version 3.0 Comming Soon!

Work has begun on the next big installment of Tabulator. I am doing a ground up rebuild of the core code to make it more modular, extensible and manageable. Version 3.0 will include the following features: - Virtual DOM to massively improve render efficiency - Modularised code to improve maintainablity and extension - Extension Modules, breaking down sorting, formatting, mutating data and more into optional modules so you only have to includethe code you want to use - Uniform Function and Callback naming to improve usability - Improved CSS structure - Uniform callback arguments - New folder structure - Webpack project build files - A load of new features and tweaks


Setting up tabulator could not be simpler.

Include the library and the css

<link href="tabulator.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script type="text/javascript" src="tabulator.js"></script>

Create an element to hold the table

<div id="example-table"></div>

Turn the element into a tabulator with some simple javascript


Bower Installation

To get Tabulator via the Bower package manager, open a terminal in your project directory and run the following commmand:

bower install tabulator --save

NPM Installation

To get Tabulator via the NPM package manager, open a terminal in your project directory and run the following commmand:

npm install jquery.tabulator --save


To access Tabulator directly from the CDNJS CDN servers, include the following two lines at the start of your project, instead of the localy hosted versions:

<link href="" rel="stylesheet">
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Coming Soon

Tabulator is actively under development and I plan to have even more useful features implemented soon, including:

Get in touch if there are any features you feel Tabulator needs.
