What I am looking for is a library that I can use to create nice looking tables, without having to first "manually" generate the table and then use the beautification tool. Much like the ones that exists for creating graphs; HighCharts, Flotr2 etc.
Does there exist such a library to allow me to simply pass a JSON-object or call a series of functions to generate a nice looking, sortable, functional HTML-table?
What you are looking for is DataTables.js.
Goto this link and get started. Enjoy.
you can use use -
jquery.dataTables.js, TableTools.js and dataTables.editor.js
with couple of css library which will give you option to generate beatiful data table. please have a look at below link
which gives you details with example about the library.
Take a look at JSON-to-HTML Table on GitHub
To convert the object to a table, you can do
var jsonHtmlTable = ConvertJsonToTable(obj, 'jsonTable', null, 'Download');
