This could be done - but not easily. Essentially (if I understand
correctly) you'd want to have a tool that uses a non-conventional control
(the html table and row checkboxes) to allow the user to remove selected
One of the challenges is: how to create a new (smaller) dataset and still
maintain the chain of reproducibility. You wouldn't want to simply make a
new dataset appear (aka pasted text upload): that wouldn't trace back to
the original table.
I think one of the ways you might do this is:
1. Create a tool that takes a list of row indices and then removes the
indicated rows from a selected dataset (this would allow keeping the edits
in the chain of reproducibility)
2. Create a simple visualization that renders the original table and
checkboxes and, when the user is done, calls the tool in (1) via the API
with the selected row indices.
Like I said - not easy, but that's my idea for it.
- There may already be a way to select the rows visually using one of
the more sophisticated tool inputs (someone else will have to speak on that)
- I believe someone else is working on a table editor - so you may be
able to wait it out

Here is what I would like to do. Any suggestions are appreciated.
I have a history item that is an html page with an html table. This table
has a checkbox on the end of each table row. I would like it if a user
could check which rows he would like to keep and then be able to filter out
all unchecked rows. I would like for this filtered table to be a
persistent, new history item.
Can this be done and how?
