in reply to Mojo Lite - Invalid JSON

Speaking as an now-forever-anonymous-to-here someone who has by now had to solve this particular problem in five (so far ...) different host-side programming environments Perl, Python, PHP, Java, and Go let me give you a bit of friendly advice.

"The client side" in this case consists of an entirely different programming ecosystem, which actually does not care what host-side language it is talking to. It only cares about the JSON that it sends and receives. Therefore, start with the demo web-pages provided by the vendor of the package. Use the debugging facilities of your favorite browser to observe e-x-a-c-t-l-y what that "JSON which works" consists of. Likewise the corresponding client-side JSON declarations.

But also, do not forget the third element which is in play here: the DOM structure created by your HTML. DataTables is absolutely intolerant of any discrepancy in "the number of columns in your table," whereas HTML is quite forgiving.

(Sorry that I could not post this comment as myself. I think I would have enjoyed the upvotes. In a past decade. Maybe.)

    Oh please. Spare us. You logged in today, and you posted as yourself less than a month ago. And then you posted twice as yourself later! In this thread.

    Your gallows speeches ring entirely hollow. You're a troll. Go away.
