Does anyone have experience with integrating the DataTables JavaScript library with Nintex Forms on-prem?

We have an open support ticket with a defect raised to the development team: the List View control does not page backwards.  Aside from that we would also like to have sorting and filtering in-line, but the paging issue is the main issue to overcome.  To work around this issue, I'm considering recommending the DataTables JavaScript library which supports paging and the other good stuff.  Does anyone have experience using this library in Nintex Forms on-prem?  We are working in SharePoint 2016.  I'm assuming we would not be able to use the List View control and all the SharePoint calls would have to be done via SharePoint's JavaScript API.

I played with the library some 1,5 year ago.

I just needed to provide the users a possibility to easily export a table to an excel/csv.

it looked very promising from their examples, unfortunately, I haven't managed to get it working. I bothered with plenty of exceptions and bugs. I tried to fix some of them but didn't get it working at the end.

hopefully the library got better/stable over the time.

let us know if you succeed better.
