Has anyone used OpenRico’s “on-demand listbox” LiveGrid or something
similar in a Rails app already? How well does it behave?
I’m asking this because I need a scrollable list but the number of
records in the table could be well above 5000. In the past I’ve used
similar “on-demand fetchings” in desktop apps and it was a real
blessing (the database load was kept low and the app’s speed was
fantastic). Using the conventional techniques such as paginated
browsing is out of the question in the app I’m going to develop.
If not, would anyone be interested in getting this (and some other
stuff such as the accordion from OpenRico) as a plug-in or added to
Rails itself in a way similar as to Protoype and script.alico.us are
transparently merged into form_remote and RJS?
