Ajaxian Featured Tutorial: Building a JavaScript table grid application with TaffyDB

Category: JavaScript

Back in March, we posted about Ian Smith’s newest project, TaffyDB, the lightweight JavaScript library that acts as thin data layer inside Web 2.0 and Ajax applications.

Ian contacted us to let us know about a new tutorial that he posted which provides step-by-step instructions on how to best implement TaffyDB:

TaffyDB extracts the “hard part” of working with data in JavaScript. It provides methods to insert, update, remove, sort, and filter a data collection in much the same way you can with SQL. But how do you take advantage of this when building a data intensive application? How can you incorporate what TaffyDB does well to minimize and simplify your code?

In this tutorial you’ll go step by step and build a simple data grid application that uses TaffyDB as the engine. The application will render a table and expose options to customize the table to your liking.

In this tutorial, he runs you through important TaffyDB steps such as initializing a grid, adding custom columns, implenting column sorting and more.

If you’ve not checked out TaffyDB, this tutorial is a great way to get acquainted with it.

Awesome tutorial! The body width of 75% got in the way (chopped off code), but that’s what Firebug’s for.
