Parse JSON files with JQUERY – render, list, sort, search, paginate?


I’m working on a project that needs to improve the user experience on a particular website. The website uses a particular CMS that uses php smarty template and caches some pages… even though the solution isn’t the best!

We pretend to hit the some 30.000 unique visitors/month just in the following 3 months and improve retention/sales.

For this, we will still use the current CMS but we will export all data to JSON files.
This JSON files will be stored on a CDN and will be used to render, on the client side, the content.

On the first approach we tried to use dynatable.com witch has/had some bugs… so I looked for another similar solution and found jPList – jQuery Data Grid Controls jPList – jQuery Data Grid Control.
