I work with a team that is in the requirements gathering stage of a web and mobile app.  We are really digging the KendoUI stuff, but we know that we will be working with Knockout.js 2.0 while developing the projects.

I saw the example on your site, but will you be adding more support for knockout?  Maybe some examples of datagrid binding, calendars, etc?

I'm sure there's a lot of folks that would love to see these 2 great libraries come together.

Thanks,
Phillip

Ok, thanks for the link.  I did not see this previously.

From the information on that link, I came away with 3 things:

1) Kendo and Knockout do not play well together,
2) The Kendo UI team has no plans to make it so that the two libraries do play well together,
3)  The Kendo UI team does have plans to create their own MVVM implementation to replace the need for Knockout.

If this is right, may I suggest that you remove the Knockout example from your Javascript integration examples?  The example implies that a Knockout + Kendo combination is a good idea.  This probably leads to a lot of misunderstandings about the two.

I look forward to seeing the Kendo teams MVVM implementation.  Thanks again for the info.

Hi,

Somehow you made the wrong conclusions from my reply.

KnockoutJS seems to play well only with vanilla html elements. Kendo UI provides some integration with Knockout but not full. I have explained what is supported and what is not in the other forum thread.

The Kendo UI team *has* plans to improve the integration. This integration would be released as a public github repository. This was clearly stated in the other forum thread.

The Kendo UI team indeed has plans to implement Kendo specific MVVM.
