angular-data-table is a AngularJS directive for presenting large and complex data. It has all the features you would expect from any other table but in a light package with no external depedencies. The table was designed to be extremely flexible and light; it doesn't make any assumptions about your data or how you: filter, sort or page it.

It was engineered from its conception to handle thousands of rows without sacrificing performance. It was built for modern browsers using ES6, CSS3 and HTML5 and only supports Evergreen Browsers and Angular >= 1.4.x and < 1.6.0.

Sadly, this project is not Angular2 upgrade compatible. Fortunately, we have authored ngx-datatable which is the successor to this project. We are going to slowly be transitioning this project maintenance mode. We will continue to provide feedback to the community and accept PRs but we won't be doing any major new development.

Using It


  • NPM npm install angular-data-table
  • JSPM jspm install github:swimlane/angular-data-table
  • BOWER bower install angular-data-table

or Github download or clone of course!


You've got 5 different options to include this in your build depending on your setup.

  • ./release/dataTable.js - A standalone file that was compiled with Babel (UMD)
  • ./release/dataTable.min.js - A minified standalone file that was compiled with Babel (UMD)
  • ./release/dataTable.cjs.js - A standalone file that was compiled with Babel (CommonJS)
  • ./release/dataTable.es6.js - Raw ES6 Version.

All distributions include babel helpers, so they do not have to be included separately.

There is also the CSS too:

  • ./release/dataTable.css - The base CSS, pretty much required
  • ./release/material.css - Material theme
  • ./release/icons.css - If you want to show fancy icons when sorting


Include the data-table module as a dependency:

    var module = angular.module('myApp', [ 'data-table' ]);

Set the data and the options in your controller:

    module.controller('HomeController', function($scope){
      $scope.options = {
        scrollbarV: false
      $ = [
        { name: 'Austin', gender: 'Male' },
        { name: 'Marjan', gender: 'Male' }

then using expressive markup in your template:

    <dtable options="options" rows="data" class="material dt">
      <column name="Name" width="300" flex-grow="2"></column>
      <column name="Gender">
        <strong>{{$}}</strong>: {{$cell}}

and your off to the races! See live demos here.
