JQuery DataTable is awesome when you just want to show a nice table without doing anything else.
As soon as you want to customize behavior it's hellish. My productivity slows to a crawl because of all unpredictable behavior and non-helpful errors.
Last one was something like $.f is undefined in console, all because I made a footer with a colspan bigger than the table.
Fuck this (Whatever 'this' is at the moment, probably undefined).11
Laravel Excel is shit and has shit documentation as well. PHPExcel may not be as pretty as a bunch of callbacks but it's more efficient and actually gets the job done.6
