Using the DataJS Library for Data-Centric JavaScript Web Applications.

I recently attended the HTML5 Summit in Miami Beach where one of the speakers was David Zhang of Microsoft speaking about the DataJS library created by Microsoft for building data-centric web applications.

The project sounded interesting so I made a note to try it out and finally got around to it. Here’s an overview.

From the DataJS project page:

datajs is a new cross-browser JavaScript library that enables data-centric web applications by leveraging modern protocols such as JSON and OData and HTML5-enabled browser features. It’s designed to be small, fast and easy to use.
