How to Use Jquery Datatable with AngularJS & PHP

We all know Jquery Datatables plugin is a high level premium jquery plugin which will convert simple HTML table data into tabular grid format. In previous, in one of our web tutorial which we have publish on JQuery Datatables Server Side Processing in PHP and we have received very huge response from our site viewer and they have requested us to make tutorial on Jquery Datatables server side processing by using AngularJS Datatable with PHP. Because Angular Datatable is one of the angular module which has been provide only datatable directive but also datatable options and helpers. With the help of Angular Datatables module, we can make stylish tabular grid listing in our angular web application with functionality like pagination, searching, sorting etc. So here in this post we will discuss on topic like Angular Datatables server side processing with PHP script and MySQL database. In this post we have not only covered tutorial in easy steps but also you can find video tutorial, live demo and source code on how to use jquery datatables plugin with AngularJS and PHP.

Following is the file structure of this tutorial source code.

  • index.html
  • fetch.php

Step 1 - Create Database with Data

Here we have covered topic on JQuery Datatables Server Side processing using AngularJs PHP, for this first we have to create customer table and and insert some customer data into table table.

-- Database: `test`

-- --------------------------------------------------------

-- Table structure for table `tbl_customer`

CREATE TABLE `tbl_customer` (
  `CustomerID` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `CustomerName` varchar(250) NOT NULL,
  `Address` text NOT NULL,
  `City` varchar(250) NOT NULL,
  `PostalCode` varchar(30) NOT NULL,
  `Country` varchar(100) NOT NULL

-- Dumping data for table `tbl_customer`

INSERT INTO `tbl_customer` (`CustomerID`, `CustomerName`, `Address`, `City`, `PostalCode`, `Country`) VALUES

Step 2 - Insert Angular, Angular Datatables, Bootstrap and Jquery File

After this we want to include different library files like AngularJs, AngularJS Datatables plugin, Jquery Datatables plugin, Jquery library and Bootstrap lirary link at header of our index page.

  <script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.3.15/angular.min.js"></script>
  <script src="angular-datatables.min.js"></script>
  <script src="jquery.dataTables.min.js"></script>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap.min.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="datatables.bootstrap.css">

Step 3 - Write HTML Code

Now we have to write some HTML code in index.html page. In this code we have define ng-app and ng-controller angular directive which will load module and handle the controller in our AngularJS application.

                   <div ng-app="customerApp" ng-controller="customerController" class="container">

   <br />
   <h3 align="center">How to Use Jquery Datatable with AngularJS & PHP</h3>
   <br />

   <table datatable="ng" dt-options="vm.dtOptions" class="table table-striped table-bordered">
      <th>Customer Name</th>
      <th>Postal Code</th>
     <tr ng-repeat="customer in customers">
      <td>{{ $index + 1 }}</td>
      <td>{{ customer.CustomerName }}</td>
      <td>{{ customer.Address }}</td>
      <td>{{ customer.City }}</td>
      <td>{{ customer.PostalCode }}</td>
      <td>{{ customer.Country }}</td>
   <br />
   <br />

Step 4 - Write AngularJS code for Fetch Data

After this we have to move to write AngularJS code in which we have load AngularJS datatables module and also handle controller. After this we have send Ajax request to PHP server side script to fetch.php and get customers data from our Mysql database.


var app = angular.module('customerApp', ['datatables']);

app.controller('customerController', function($scope, $http){
 $http.get('fetch.php').success(function(data, status, headers, config){
  $scope.customers = data;


Step 5 - Fetch Recrods from Mysql Database

Lastly we have to write PHP code in fetch.php file and fetch data from Mysql database table tbl_customer. Here we want to convert data in JSON format for display data on datatables. So for this we have first store data in PHP Array and convert into JSON string by using json_encode() function.



$connect = new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=test', 'root', '');

$query = "SELECT * FROM tbl_customer ORDER BY CustomerID DESC";

$statement = $connect->prepare($query);


while($row = $statement->fetch(PDO::FETCH_ASSOC))
 $data[] = $row;

echo json_encode($data);


If you want to see live demo of Jquery Datatables server side processing using AngularJS & PHP, so you have to see demo link below and if you want to download complete source code then also you can find download link below also.


  1. dear sir please make a tutorials of inventory and invoice system using Angular JS PHP & Mysql

  2. To translate the datable into Brazilian Portuguese?


  3. when data has ΓΌ character, cannot return any rows. Any idea why ?

  4. How about 1000 records....very slow !!!!

  5. this isnt server side processing & pagination at all! you are showing client side processing.
