@patrickclancy Personally, I would do this with something at the view layer such as custom attributes so you don't have to litter your map definitions with knowledge of how they might be used in the view http://jsbin.com/zozuhevosa/2/edit?html,js,output
ahh interesting…. "a viewmodel inbetween the actual model” I’ll need to think about how to implement that. I like the can-type=“…” you’ve really got me thinking about the possible ways to skin the model cat.
@alexisabril arent mustache helpers appropriate to use when you want the view format to be different than the data format? That's what I use for currency, date, et al. ...unless I'm misunderstanding the original question
