What does it do?
datajs is a JavaScript library for web applications that supports the latest version of the OData protocol and HTML5 features such as local storage. It provides a simple, extensible API that can help you write better web applications, faster. Our goal is to simplify working with data on the web, and to leverage improvements in modern browsers.

Release Notes

datajs is a cross-browser and UI agnostic JavaScript library that enables data-centric web applications with the following features:

  • OData client that enables CRUD operations including batching and metadata support using both ATOM and JSON payloads.
  • Single store abstraction that provides a common API on top of HTML5 local storage technologies.
  • Data cache component that allows reading data ranges from a collection and storing them locally to reduce the number of network requests.


The OData scene has been a little quite recently, but I think that's just the quite before the storm...
