Anyone have a recommendation for a grid control? I’ve used dataTables and SlickGrid but I’m looking for other alternatives.

I don't... but if you find one you should wrap it in a Component and release that

imo, canjs with a component-driven approach to a data grid would be much more ideal than using a third party data grid solution and fitting it into a canJS app... cause a data grid with live bindings, controls/components and a service layer for CRUD, would be way better than any alternative I've seen out there

how would I go about overloading a custom attribute such as can-value? for example, I want additional code to run when can-value gets hooked up but using can.view.attr() seems to overwrite the original
