StreamTable.js streams data for tables in the background, updates and renders them using templating frameworks like Mustache.js, HandleBars.js.
Sometimes we want to show thousands of records in a table. This can take too long for the page to render and make the page unusable till the entire table is populated. To counter this we could populate the table using an Ajax call. In both cases, the users have to wait until all the table rows are populated. Additionally, user cannot do any operations on the table like search, pagination etc.
The idea behind StreamTable.js is to initially populate minimum rows (maybe 10 or 20) and after that in stream data silently in the background and update the table. This ensures that the page loads immediately and is also usable immediately for all operations.Tags: Filter
