announcement: JSONProxy

From: Aidan F.

Hey all-
I had a project at work ( where I was adding client-side metadata fetching for videos.  Both Vimeo and Youtube offer oEmbed APIs, but Youtube doesn't have-cross domain support, CORS doesn't work in older browsers, blah blah blah.

I built a little service in Node to proxy requests to APIs that don't support CORS or JSONP (which I demoed at Hack&Tell a while ago), but just wrote a little jQuery plugin that wraps jQuery.ajax() to handle the browser detection and proxy configuration for you (where necessary).  This means painless requests in any browser to any URL.

  url: '', // any JSON endpoint
  corsSupport: true, // if URL above supports CORS (optional)
  jsonpSupport: true, // if URL above supports JSONP (optional)

  success: function(data){
  // error, etc.

Hope it comes in handy for someone else!  More info here:
