This is more of a note to myself so that I can remember the JavaScript libraries I’m interested in and what they do and maybe a related article.  These are mainly in dealing with SharePoint but could be anything really.  Not everything is compatible with everything else remember 🙂

 

KnockoutJs – Data binding library, works with jQuery, great for a true single page app, IE no routing just data binding.  Yes I know SPA’s pages are called views.

AngularJS – Proper SPA framework, there’s Durandal but I’?m not going there even though I love knockout.

BreezeJs

    – Linq Like queries, does need server side integration, not for local objects

Bootstrap – For that nice CSS layout grids and things.

Bootstrap UI – Directives for Angular using bootstrap

Angular Maps – Google maps directives for angular, something I’ve used already.

 

LinqJs – Linq for JavaScript, will work on JS objects, doesn’t do fetch for you

Js Loaders – http://requirejs.org/  and  http://labjs.com/

jQuery – Well how could I not mention it.

jQuery form validators

Sliders – http://slippry.com/ , http://bxslider.com/, http://workshop.rs/projects/coin-slider/

fontawesome – No idea, well something to do with a shed load of CSS icons, vectors (no IE7)

Charts – jqPlot, http://www.flotcharts.org/, hicharts

Spinner – svg/vml Spinner, easier than a gif ?

 

Stuff to investigate
