On [1], I described what has been done:

* Generated HTML is saved into Memcached, retrieved until invalidated
* Changing source json  [6] file invalidates cache and regenerate+cache
the table
* Specific view [4] via a MediaWiki "special page", nice for the public
to re-use
* Theme less view [5], used for ESI version, but can be re-used too
