In the past week, Pedago has released 3 open source projects on our github page.
Iguana is an Object-Document Mapper for use in AngularJS applications. This means that it gives you a way to instantiate an instance of a class every time you pull down data over an API. It’s similar to Ruby tools like activerecord or mongomapper.
Both iguana and super-model depend on a-class-above, which provides basic object-oriented programming (OOP) functionality. A-class-above is based on Prototype’s class implementation, and also provides inheritable class methods and some convenient helpers for dealing with enumerables that are shared among classes in an inheritance hierarchy.
This is our first foray into the management of open-source projects, so we’ll be learning as we go along. We’re trying hard to make these useful to the community, so we have packaged them up as bower components and spent time writing what we hope is useful documentation. We used groc for the documentation and focused on documenting our specs in order to provide lots of useful examples, rather than documenting each method in the API. We hope that this will be more helpful than more traditional API documentation would have been, and would love to hear comments on how it’s working for folks.
We hope that other AngularJS users will find iguana, super-model, and a-class-above to be useful and decide to contribute.
