Integrate Datatable in CakePHP 3 with Static JOSN using jQuery, Bootstrap 3

Posted by & filed under CakePHP, JAVASCRIPT, JQUERY, PHP.

Presenting huge data to the end user in tablur form of data with pagination, search, ordering and etc is too diffcult to implement. jQuery is providing few plugins which helps to show data in the tablur form with pagination, search and etc. The DataTable plugin is one the popular jQuery plugin which has huge number of features like pagination, search, ordering, inline edit, autofill and responsive, also supports different themes like Bootstrap, jQuery UI and Foundation CSS framework.

I am going to write series of tutorials which mainly targets the integration jQuery DataTable plugin with Core PHP, CakePHP 3.3, Laravel 5.3 and YII 2 frameworks. Please follow all this series of tutorial step by step to integrate jQuery DataTable plugin with Core PHP, CakePHP 3.3, Laravel 5.3 and YII 2.

When you are trying something new, if we do not get any result initially we will leave that plugin and then we will go for different one. To avoid this I am starting with very very simple integration of jQuery Datatable plugin. In this tutorial I am going to use static JSON data as data source for the DataTables. In next tutorial I will replace the static datasource with dynamic one (ajax call).

 

Integrate jQuery Datatable Plugin with CakePHP 3 and Bootstrap 3 with Static data

Step 1: Initialize DataTables Using HTML Markup

Please create EmployeesController.php in your src/Controller directory. Next add staticData() public function like this

    
<?php
namespace App\Controller;

use App\Controller\AppController;
use Cake\Datasource\ConnectionManager;

/**
 * Employees Controller
 *
 * @property \App\Model\Table\EmployeesTable $Employees
 */
class EmployeesController extends AppController
{
   /**
     * staticData Method
     */
    public function staticData()
    {
        $this->viewBuilder()->layout('datatables');
    }
}
    

Next create view file static_data.ctp in src/Template/Employess directory, and add following HMTL table markup in it.

    
<div class="row">
    <div class="col-md-12">
        <div class="table-responsive">
            <table id="employees-grid"  class="table table-striped">
                <thead>
                    <tr>
                        <th>Employees No</th>
                        <th>Birth Date</th>
                        <th>First Name</th>
                        <th>Last Name</th>
                        <th>Gender</th>
                        <th>Hire Date</th>
                    </tr>
                </thead>
            </table>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>
    
Integrate jQuery Datatable Plugin with CakePHP 3 and Bootstrap 3 with Static data

Step 2: Add Required Assets (jQuery, DataTables)

Next we need to add required assets files to the layout file. I have create datatables.ctp layout file in src/Template/Employess directory, and added required assets files in it.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

<head>
    <?= $this->Html->charset() ?>
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <meta name="description" content="">
    <meta name="author" content="">
    <?= $this->Html->meta('icon') ?>
    <title>CakePHP 3 DataTables</title>
    <?= $this->Html->css([ 'bootstrap.min', 'datatables-extensions/dataTables.bootstrap.min', 'style' ]) ?>
    <?=
        $this->Html->script([ 'jquery-1.12.3','bootstrap.min', 'jquery.dataTables.min',
                             'datatables-extensions/dataTables.bootstrap.min'
                            ])
    ?>
</head>

<body>


    <div class="container">
       <?= $this->Flash->render() ?>
       <div class="clearfix"></div>
       <?= $this->fetch('content') ?>
    </div>
    <!-- /container -->
</body>

</html>

Step 3: Initialize DataTables HTML Markup Via Datatables Javascript Functions

Finally initialize DataTables HTML Markup with Datatable API Functions ( DataTable() ). Add following script in the bottom of view file (static-data.ctp).


<script>
$(document).ready(function() {
    $('#employees-grid').DataTable( {
        data: staticData
    } );
} );
</script>

Here is the dummy static JSON data..
