HTML5 Editable Table
<div class="container">
<h1>HTML5 Editable Table</h1>
<p>Through the powers of <strong>contenteditable</strong> and some simple jQuery you can easily create a custom editable table. No need for a robust JavaScript library anymore these days.</p>
<ul>
<li>An editable table that exports a hash array. Dynamically compiles rows from headers</li>
<li>Simple / powerful features such as add row, remove row, move row up/down.</li>
</ul>
<div id="table" class="table-editable">
<span class="table-add glyphicon glyphicon-plus"></span>
<table class="table">
<tr>
<th>Name</th>
<th>Value</th>
<th></th>
<th></th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td contenteditable="true">Stir Fry</td>
<td contenteditable="true">stir-fry</td>
<td>
<span class="table-remove glyphicon glyphicon-remove"></span>
</td>
<td>
<span class="table-up glyphicon glyphicon-arrow-up"></span>
<span class="table-down glyphicon glyphicon-arrow-down"></span>
</td>
</tr>
<!-- This is our clonable table line -->
<tr class="hide">
<td contenteditable="true">Untitled</td>
<td contenteditable="true">undefined</td>
<td>
<span class="table-remove glyphicon glyphicon-remove"></span>
</td>
<td>
<span class="table-up glyphicon glyphicon-arrow-up"></span>
<span class="table-down glyphicon glyphicon-arrow-down"></span>
</td>
</tr>
