Topic: Can I use server-side processing to update the datatable component?

oyamamahiro free asked 1 year ago


I use the datatable component to display some information. It's so convenient and beautiful.

But when my data is going large, it will take so long time to initialize.

I find that other datatable component such as, can use server-side processing to update the data.

The code example:

$('#example').DataTable( { serverSide: true, ajax: '/data-source' } );

I browsed the whole MDB document but couldn't find any information. I have no idea, so I ask this question.

Can you help me?

Unfortunately, our datatable does not have a special server-side processing option that would speed up data downloading and processing. We are aware that our datatables have a problem with processing large amounts of data and we are currently working on another solution that will be properly optimized. Unfortunately, at the moment I can't say when it will be released.
