Thanks Ryan!! this was exceptionally useful. The fact that you took the time to figure out how to this gem run server side was just great.
It would be good to see a follow up casts using custom css formatting and other interesting tricks. (ie how to handle timeouts, ignoring searching on specific columns).
But what is really useful in the casts are the gems we never heard of used in ways we did not realize were possible. ie charting was a great example
