As many developers probably have before me, considering when building an app with AngularJS and Kendo UI if I should use the Kendo UI Datasource "all the way" or instead mix it with Angulars $http/$resource. Or to be more specific, how to handle transfer of data to and from the Kendo UI datasource, as the Datasource would probably be used no matter what as it plays nice with the Kendo UI widgets. As of now we've build (kind of) a service that returns a Kendo UI Datasource complete with URLs for read, update, create, destroy and model/schema info so we don't have to have that code in our controllers (or even worse, views) which work fine but we are considering if we should change that to a more AngularJS like services using $http or $resource. But we are a bit wary of what kind of problems we might run into in the future by doing so. At the same time, having a "pure" AngularJS handling of data is also tempting.
It would be nice if Telerik could provide some summary of pros and cons of using each method, what to look out for and what might not work if using $http/$resource compared to the "normal" Kendo UI way.
