Hi All,

Has anyone experienced the Kendo UI from MVVM pattern? I would like to see the pitfalls in this decision. So that I would be ready for the unexpected.

Thanks for reading

I've been pleasantly surprised so far actually and have converted from KO

Pitfalls?
  1. No syntax sugar for like "foreach: " in the markup, you need to use templates\nested templates
  2. No equivalent of $root or $parent in this release...the latest internal implements parent(), but it's not fully working it appears.
  3. No Css binding without a workaround

Benefits:

  1. Everything in the model is an observable by default (so no need for a "mapping" plugin)
  2. Nicer api to work with (IMO)
  3. Seems to render faster
  4. Support, Support, Support.  You have a problem or "how do I" with KO, you have to just hope someone answers you.
