Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMDEV-132) Update to current Datatables release?
Date Fri, 26 Jun 2015 05:18:04 GMT


Hervé Boutemy commented on COMDEV-132:

I've no deep experience with JavaScript, but I think that currently the projects-new code
made it simple, with old-school practice of copying js file with renaming and so on

what you seem to expect is to have real dependency management on libraries, minification,
and so on: if we go on this direction, we should switch to JavaScript building tools that
were made for the, ie grunt and al (as no real experience, I can never remember tool names
and usage, but you get the idea)

> The current release of Datatables is 1.10.7; the code currently seems to be using 1.10.4.
> I suggest updating to 1.10.7; at the same time I think the correct file names should
be used, i.e. jquery.dataTables.min.[css|js] rather than the plain datatables.[css|js] which
is less descriptive.
> The JS file includes a comment with the version and licensing details; unfortunately
the CSS file has no such identification. Perhaps we should add a brief comment? It would also
be possible to document the version in the SVN log message (should do that anyway). Or use
a separate text file, but that would likely get outdated (maybe include the MD5 hash of the
file to identify it)?
