Responsive tables

In the modern world of responsive web design tables can often cause a particular problem for designers due to their row based layout.

Responsive is an extension for DataTables that resolves that problem by optimising the table's layout for different screen sizes through the dynamic insertion and removal of columns from the table.

Class control

You can tell Responsive what columns to want to be visible on different devices through the use of class names on the columns. The breakpoints are horizontal screen resolutions and the defaults are set for common devices.
