DataTable Functionality without the Table
- DataTable provides great stuff: pagination, sorting, data binding, etc. But what about listings
of "tabular" data that are not *tables*?
For example, a listing page that shows thumbnails along with meta-data like title,
description, date, author, etc; in a div. A "Order by: Author, Data, Title" at the top of the list
would be great functionality, as would paging.
Basically, the "row" would be an arbitrary node and the fields would be arbitrary children of
this node. Anything not specifically designated as a field/column would be treated as static
and repeated. In-place editing should work as well.
Anyone have ideas on how to implement this or a suggestion on a smarter design?
