DataTables is a jQuery plugin for intelligent HTML tables. Next to adding dynamic elements to the table, it also has great supports for on-demand data fetching and server-side processing. The cakephp-datatables plugin makes it easy to use the functionality DataTables provides in your CakePHP 3 application. It consists of a helper to add DataTables to your view and a Component to transparently process AJAX requests made by DataTables.
