  3. Examples that uses other backends.

    You know that many developers have already loved Breeze.js but that's not it. It has the potential to be a really great technology for the new breeds of developers (beginners)...

    I'd like to suggest to include examples on how Breeze.js works with other backend technologies such as Java, PHP, etc..

    Changing status to complete.

    Our NodeJS/MongoDB sample was added in 1.4.0, and our Ruby sample went live shortly before 1.4.2.
    ________

    Work is well underway on a Java backend for Breeze, using Hibernate and JAX-RS. Please check out https://github.com/Breeze/breeze.server.java/tree/master/breezejs-hibernate .

    The NorthBreeze sample (https://github.com/Breeze/breeze.js.samples/tree/master/java/NorthBreeze ) is a web application that uses the breezejs-hibernate library.

  4. Support NHibernate

    Support NHibernate out of the box like EF

  5. Seperate out EFContextProvider

    I would like to start out by saying nice job on breeze. You guys have a breeze mvc webapi dll for those people doing .net. I really like the EFContextProvider, but I think it would be cool if it was a seperate project. This would allow users to use it in different class libraries to create repositories and a unit of work for the different models that you create and have one place to manage it. Keep it breezy, thanks

  6. adding ANY and ALL filter operators

    It would be nice to filter on the properties of 1-n related enities. [Even if it is a collection of entites and not a single (1-1 related) entity.]

    With my suggestion it would be possible to execute the following queries:

    •find all movies starring a particular actor
    •find all orders where at least one of the order-lines is for a particular product
    •find all orders where every order-line has a value greater than $400
    •find all movies tagged 'quirky' - where Tags is a multi-valued property.
    •find all movies with a least one actor tagged as a favorite

    It would…

  8. Support for MongoDb out of the box like EF

    I would like support for other popular noSql databases like MongoDB and RavenDB. If this can already be supported then just some proper documentation on how it can be achieved and some supporting example projects would be very helpful. Thanks.

  10. Support TypeScript final 1.0

    Now that TypeScript 1.0 is released it is time to update the breeze.d.ts file to support this final release.
    Also it would be nice if breeze.d.ts supports the actual export/import mechanism of TypeScript. Best example: knockout.d.ts

  14. Make breeze play nice with AMD loaders like require.js

    There is a problem when you want to AMD load breeze.js (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13937539/breezejs-and-requirejs-not-working-as-expected)
    I think the only problem is that breeze.js should define dependencies in the define() call. Currently it calls define(), but doesn't pass ['ko', 'Q'] as dependencies, but instead looks for ko and Q in the global namespace.
    If this is too much trouble, please provide second breeze-amd.js version.

  15. Support $inlinecount in queries

    The OData 2.0 spec describes the $inlinecount parameter (http://www.odata.org/documentation/uri-conventions#InlinecountSystemQueryOption) as a way to include with query results the count of all records that satisfy the filter clause without respect to the paging parameters (top and skip) that may be in the query request.

    0.75.1 is now live, and adds an ’inlineCount" method to the EntityQuery.

    This provides support for providing, in addition to standard query results, the count of records that would be returned by this query if no ‘skip’ or ‘take’ option were included on the query.

    In other words, the count is calculated after applying any filters/where clauses but before any skip/take operations.

    See the API Docs for more details. Both OData and WebApi endpoints are supported with this feature.

  16. Mocking Data Calls

    Allow for Breeze's data service calls to be able to be overridden with mock data calls, so data can be seen without needs to make actual ajax calls for designing and testing. Similar to amplify's model and using mockJSON with it.

  17. Angularjs support

    I'm curious as to what you guys are cooking up for Angular...It seems like it could in theory be pretty easy as angular binds to plain objects, but I'm sure there are plenty of wrinkles. Glad we have brilliant minds such as yourselves to figure this stuff out!
    Just off the top of my head I'm thinking in the query promise callback you could set the array to what forEach is observing via an angular.apply() call, since we're outside of angular. Or better yet somehow integrate the promise with forEach since this is what angular uses if I remember correctly.…

  18. Support TypeScript 0.9

    The TypeScript Definition File (d.ts) that is being distributed likely needs to be updated to support the new features in the recently release TypeScript 0.9 (like Generics support). For those wanting to upgrade to the latest TypeScript, it would be difficult without this.

  19. Create minimal NuGet packages for server and client

    I have my WebAPI project separate from my web client. It would be nice to have a NuGet package that only installs the server-side DLLs and dependencies and a separate NuGet package that only installs the client JS.

  20. Support .withParameters for OData (datajs)

    The current implementation of withParameters() only sends those parameters to the XHR implementation, but it does not pass them to the OData provider. The fix is simple, but it's not supported yet. Please implement!
