JayData vs Upshot (crossplatform HTML5 app)
I'm just in the planning phase of developing my iPhone/iPad/Android app.
I'm a .NET developer, I use Visual Studio 11 for web development, so I found the Single Page Application template, which uses Upshot.js by default.
By exploring the alternatives, I've found JayData http://jaydata.org library. It seems to me that it's something similar to upshot.js.
Could you share your opinion, which way should I go to build a cross-platform HTML5 application?
Upshot and JayData looks similar but actually they are quite different, which makes your choice easier. There are things however both provides
Both has pros and cons (as everything in life)
Upshot.js is backed by Microsoft and focuses mainly on oData + Knockoutjs support. It is included in Visual Studio. You can query oData endpoints with it using a procedural query language.Upshot supports read/write operations, and also realtime updates.
