Dribbling with Filter.js: client-side JS filtering of JSON objects

Dribbling Filter.js

Play framework with client-side JS filtering of JSON objects and rendering HTML snippets via jQuery.

Big chunk to display? Interactive filtering? Most importantly it has to be really fast. Isn’t it like dribbling against Netherland! Big ground, lots of hooting and most importantly have to be fast and win
 
UI programming is an exciting ground to play, That’s why i chose reactive platform play framework. But problem was how to dribble at client side. Need an api to provide fast filtering of data. Answer is Filter.js

In this post we are integrating Filter.js with Play Framework for reactive data streaming using Ajax and filtering data on client side using Filter.js magic.

Filter.js is client-side JSON objects filter to show/hide HTML elements. Multiple filter criteria can be specified and used in conjunction with each other.

Mustache.js is a logic-less template syntax. It can be used for HTML, config files, source code – anything. It works by expanding tags in a template using values provided in a hash or object.


Instructions :-


  • The Github code for the project is at : playing-json-object-filter-js
  • Clone the project into local system
  • To run the Play framework 2.3.3, you need JDK 6 or later
  • Install Typesafe Activator if you do not have it already. You can get it from here: download
  • Execute activator clean compile to build the product
  • Execute activator run to execute the product
  • playing-json-object-filter-js should now be accessible at localhost:9000

This is the start, from next week onwards we would be working on this application to make it grow. We would look at how we can make it more functional, then we would be adding more modules to it together. If you have any changes then feel free to send in pull requests and we would do the merges 🙂 Stay tuned.
