Includes utilities to keep models in sync with their server-side representation without the need of writing jQuery boilerplate ajax calls.

Libraries & Packages

1.Has two-way databinding
rAppid JS
Models and views can be bound to update each other.
2.Supports one-way data binding

Views can be bound to update automatically when an observable object changes.
3.Uses observables for data binding
rAppid JS
Models are observed for changes. This is a well known pattern. Can be more performant than dirty-checking in some cases.
