Switching from jQGrid to Data Tables

Was finding using jQGrid was becoming way more complicated than it should be. Moved to data tables, which also runs on jQuery. For me, what was nice was that someone did a tutorial on how to integrate it with Twitter Bootstrap (which I was already using) to make it look good as well. If you don’t use Twitter Bootstrap, you can also use the jQuery UI roller to make a style and color scheme to make the table look nice.

Data tables included the functionality I needed – search and pagination and all I had to do was point the javascript to my html table code. Simple.
