@christroutner - finished the django-rest-framework tutorials.
Well done, extensive, tedious. But I think it will be worth the effort.
Lots of features and options. Almost as bad as NRP.
Lotsa holiday and family stuff coming up.
How about you?
I will be able to put some hours in, though.

I figure we'll all slow down a bit.

Yup
This is not bad for the early stage API work

I'm working with the Backbone.js framework a lot right now. I plan to use this framework to develop the new UI and interface to the new API.

I want to start slowly and carefully.
I'll look it up.

It's a competing framework to Angular and Ember.

Yep
Here's a video I watched discussing the pros and cons of each: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bODntw206ZQ

some day
for now, I'm happy to have to make the choice

Backbone is the least opinionated and has the fastest learning curve. I haven't tried Ember, but I tried Angular, and I already like Backbone a lot more.

good
searching for backbone django gives me a lot of hits
that's enuf for me to think about how they might interact

@mfrangos: I'd still love to have a Skype session with you so we can get on the same page regarding design constraints.

slightly better: searching for backbone django rest framework
Typo alert: I meant, I'm happy to have you make the choice of which js approach to use.

@christroutner me too but it's hard for me to get online since I'm out of town visiting familay and I don't have access to WiFi. I'm not going to be designing between now and the new year. This time of year is always really busy for me.

@christroutner I will be online intermittently until maybe the 31st, which is when travel and and visiting start.
Until then, people are visiting us.
So I'll keep poking away at things and trying to make progress.
Then I will slow down until maybe Jan 7 or so.
