While DataTables has a lot of flexibility built-in by default, there might come a time when you wish to add your own features or overrule some of what DataTables does internally. This is possible through the plug-in architecture that DataTables provides for developers. This section of the DataTables site provides plug-ins of various types, which the authors have kindly released for public consumption. If you have any you would also like to share, please get in touch.

First class plug-ins / Extras

As well as the type specific plug-ins presented in this section of the site, there are a number of first class plug-ins for DataTables which add additional abilities and interaction options to DataTables, such as reordering columns, adding toolbars, and much more. These are available in the extras section of this site.
