Theme datatable connected to db

You can easily connect to the same or a separate database using our database handler: 


In terms of outputting/formatting the data, you could potentially use our table helper class (\IPS\Helpers\Table), else you would need to write your own code for this.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know of any templates/online resources that already do something with this table helper class I can work off of?

For the datatable you're showing which is DataTables, the data will need to be in JSON format if you want server-side loading and pagination, etc. The other way to do it is to loop over the TBODY output and write the tr/tds to the screen with the database values inserted, although depending on the number of rows, this could drastically impact performance.
