3. Load languages you prefer. You can find all languages under the local folder.

<script src="locale/bootstrap-table-en-US.min.js"></script>

4. Turns a standard HTML table into a data table using the data-toggle="table" attribute.

<table class="table" data-toggle="table">
      <th scope="col">First</th>
      <th scope="col">Last</th>
      <th scope="col">Handle</th>
      <td>the Bird</td>

5. To load tabular data from an external JSON file:

<table class="table" data-toggle="table" data-url="data.json">
      <th scope="col">First</th>
      <th scope="col">Last</th>
      <th scope="col">Handle</th>

6. You can also initialize the data table and define the tabular data in the JavaScript as these:

<table class="table" id="example">
  columns: [{
      field: 'first',
      title: 'First Name'
  }, {
      field: 'last',
      title: 'Last Name'
  }, {
      field: 'handle',
      title: 'Handle'
  data: [{
      first: 'Mark',
      last: 'Otto',
      handle: '@mdo'

7. Full plugin options to customize your data table.
