TableFilerExt is a lightweight JavaScript plugin to dynamically insert headers (th) and cells (td) into an HTML table using JavaScript syntax.

Supports colspan and empty table cells.

How to use it:

1. Insert the TableFilerExt plugin's JavaScript into the HTML file.

<!-- As a Vanilla JS Plugin -->
<script src="tableFillerExt.min.js"></script>

<!-- As a jQuery Plugin -->
<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.tableFillerExt.min.js"></script>

2. Create an empty table element on the page.

<table id="table"></table>

3. Add headers and tabular data to the HTML table.

// Vanilla JavaScript
let table = document.getElementById("table");
table.addThs("H1",2,"H2","H3")
.addTds("A1",2,"F1","F2")

// jQuery
let table = $("#table");
table.addThs("H1",2,"H2","H3")
.addTds("A1",2,"F1","F2")

4. That's it. The empty table will be populated with the data you provide as follows:

<table id="table">
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <th>H1</th>
      <th colspan="2">H2</th>
      <th>H3</th>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>A1</td>
      <td></td>
      <td></td>
      <td>F1</td>
      <td>F2</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>
