tablefilter actually integrates really well with dokuwiki out of the box, I can't see why this wasn't done yet. As I said, I am not a programmer, but I found my efforts worthwhile! I just copied
Version 2.5.1 from:
which is free.
I extracted the zip file to
/lib/plugins/tablefilter. The monetized module
tf_ezEditTable has to be removed from the folder, otherwise it produces error messages. I also added some free and useful extensions from the download section http://tablefilter.free.fr/dwn.php, which control
row visibility and
sortable table. I placed an HTML table into
/conf/pagefooter.html, which is the standard html hook into dokuwiki.
There were some minor fixes to do: the configuration code for the tablefilter plugin (as described on the homepage) and some css in the
pagefooter.html, some jQuery to control the display of multiple tables on multiple pages in
/conf/userscipt.js, and so on.
In summary, I have integrated a working example of tablefilter, without much difficulty, which looks and works great so far and may serve my users well. So what is next? It is further necessary to translate the HTML code of the table from tablefilter back and forth into dokuwiki markup code of the table for inline editing via edittable plugin in a real dokuwiki page.
It would be a small step for a programmer, but I am sure it would be a big leap for the dokuwiki community!
Maybe, I will try to hack this myself, someday! :-)
