Sign in to queue

Description

This week on Web Camps TV, Stephen Walther from the ASP.NET Team joins James Senior (@jsenior) to discuss an exciting announcement: Microsoft is about to make the first contributions to the jQuery open source project!

In the past 6 months, we've been busy working on three features:

  1. Templating
  2. Data-Linking
  3. Globalization

In this video, we show demos of the contributions in action and how/when they will be available for developers to use!

Find out more at www.jquery.com and be sure to sign up for a free Web Camp to learn more about the jQuery contributions.

Enjoy!
James @jsenior

The Discussion

    I am trying to find a templating system that would be able to render in both client and server. So far I found nothing for .NET - only mustache does that, and it's not available for .net.

    Sparkview apparently does have this capability (not very well documented), but switching engines is an overkill for me. I just want a simple HTML helper for MVC that would render a template (and obviously a matching javascript part too)

    @Artemiy: We've been talking about doing something like that, but I've not had time to build it.  I would love to see a CodePlex project spring up that does this.  Perhaps we could do a Helper?

    @Artemiy:There's XSLT which is supported everywhere. Unfortunately, most web browsers only support XSLT 1.0, not the newer XSLT 2.0.
