Efficiently work with data, web templates, and custom HTML tags using KnockoutJS
Knockout is a jQuery-friendly library that helps you to create rich, responsive displays and editor user interfaces with a clean underlying data model.
Starting with the installation and configuration of KnockoutJS, this book will describe the ins and outs of working with forms using arrays, nesting, and grids.
You will learn about event binding and context binding properties using JSON and AJAX. You will then explore the features of KnockoutJS like mapping and how to go about it using controller options. You will also learn how to use this feature for mapping multiple objects and managing them. This book provides an in-depth explanation of native templates, enhanced collection handling, and render event handling using third-party template engines.
