A General Purpose SQL-to-HTML Routine for CoffeeScript/JavaScript/Node.js

Using node-mysql or similar, the following CoffeeScript routine will generate an HTML table containing the data in a SQL result set, including column headings:

  connection.query query, bindvars, (err,rows,fields)->
    if err?
      buffer = '<table border=1><tr>'
      for field in fields
        buffer += "<th>#{field.name}</th>"
      buffer += '</tr>'
      for row in rows
        buffer += '<tr>'
        for field in fields
          buffer += "<td>#{row[field.name]}</td>"
        buffer += '</tr>'
      buffer += '</table>'
