Plugin or module for filtering/sorting a large amount of data?
I have a rather large amount of data (100 MB or so), that I would like to present to a user. The format of the data is similar to the following...
Date Location Log File Link 03/21/2010 San Diego some_log.txt http://somelink.com etc
My problem is that I would like to have some nice/slick way for the user to filter the information. Unfortunately, because there is so much of it, the jQuery Table Filter plugin does not work (crashes the browser). I was wondering if there is a nice solution or if I have to simply do the filtering on the server end and have a bland pull-down menu / select-box interface for the client to use.
Use paging. (Maybe a little ajax).
If the browser has Google Gears installed for its DB API or supports HTML5's Web SQL Database (e.g. Opera 10.5+), you can import all the data into a client-side SQL database and perform the sorting+paging queries with SQL.
