When displaying large amounts of data in a table, it can often be useful for the end user to have the column titles always visible. This is particularly true if using DataTables with pagination disabled, or the display length is set to a high value. The FixedHeader extension provides this ability.
For inclusion of this library using a standard
<script> tag, rather than using this package, it is recommended that you use the DataTables download builder which can create CDN or locally hosted packages for you, will all dependencies satisfied.
npm install datatables.net-fixedheader-bs
var $ = require( 'jquery' ); require( 'datatables.net-fixedheader-bs' )( window, $ );
bower install --save datatables.net-fixedheader-bs
