Another way to handle JSON-heavy apps?

Mike S.

hey everybody,

At last month's meeting, we talked about various approaches to exchanging data between the client and server and updating the client's HTML view, without having to duplicate code -- ideally by using the same template everywhere, on the server, and in the Javascript that renders updates. The reason you would do this is to keep communications between the client and server lightweight -- so for example you could just pass JSON to the client instead of a bunch of HTML.

I think SproutCore looks like a really cool way to accomplish the goals we discussed. Apple built all of the new MobileMe apps with it and it got good buzz from WWDC. We're evaluating it for use in OtherInbox; anyone else played with it yet?­

Has the potential to make JS-heavy apps more powerful.
