I'm playing with Kendo just few days... yesterday I have start to investigate SPA app pattern and it implementation in Kendo. I understand how views, layouts and router plays together.
But I have a problem to design app as whole.
My example app is about customers. Imagine you have customers. Customers have services. And every (logged) user in my app can manage zero or more customers and their services.
In my app I have a 1 layout object rendered from template. This template have 1 combobox which can be used to select a customer and one div for "views". in this simple case imagine only 3 views, showing 3 different grids of some customer's data (for example services, log entries and contacts).
1. one BIG model (instance of observable) or one model for layout and 3 smaller models for each views?
2. if more than one, how to synchronize "customer selection" and propagate this change down to views?
3. if i have not 3 but 100 views... will be all templates "rendered and synchronized" even if only one is active?
4. how to free memory from inactive views? each view have datasource for grid, grid's data are huge (500+ rows, more than 10 columns) ... if i enable row filtering, datasource is duplicated for suggestion autocomplete edit box. not sure if one model is good way.
I would be very happy if someone with more knowledge with Kendo SPA help me how to start :)
