jQuery Plugin for Mobile-Friendly HTML Tables - makeTableResponsive.js

Just another jQuery plugin designed to create fully responsive HTML tables that adapt gracefully to mobile devices.

It works by converting wider tables into two-column compact tables using CSS media queries, providing a good user experience for mobile users without compromising the table layout on desktop. 

How to use it:

1. Download and place the makeTableResponsive.js script after jQuery library.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/makeTableResponsive.js"></script>

2. Attach the plugin to your HTML table and specify the breakpoint to hide certain columns on small screens and create an optimal two-column table layout.

<table class="table">
      <th>Column 1</th>
      <th>Column 2</th>
      <th>Column 3</th>
      <td>Row 1, Column 1</td>
      <td>Row 1, Column 2</td>
      <td>Row 1, Column 3</td>
      <td>Row 2, Column 1</td>
      <td>Row 2, Column 2</td>
      <td>Row 2, Column 3</td>
      <td>Row 3, Column 1</td>
      <td>Row 3, Column 2</td>
      <td>Row 3, Column 3</td>
  // default: "500px"
  "breakpoint": "728px",

3. Set the number of header rows to preserve. Default: -1.

  headingRow: 1,

4. Customize the styles of the mobile version of the HTML table.

.cfmobile-table {
  /* mobile styles here */
