How can we improve Breeze.js?

Support other clients

Would be nice to develop the server components and then have some type of wizard or generator that could create a portable class library that could target windows 8 and wp8, generating the necessary client classes, metadata etc. Then you add a reference to the PCL client project, getting all the benefits. Basically how ria services was for SL but make breeze work with several clients by using PCL

    Yes, ofcourse that is a must have I think.. When I create an Asp.Net Web API it should ofcourse be usable for every type of client, not just javascript/breeze.. So when I saw the info about Breeze I was very confused of the fact that I should create a dedicated API just for that..? Or? Am I thinking wrong?

    No, I want to be able to create 1 web api that could be used for the client like it currently does and also to be able to use the same web api in c# on win 8 / wp8 but have it generate c# code to get all the added benefits that the javascript client gets.

    Don't quite understand. You seem to be asking for something like Breeze but instead of JavaScript you want it to be in a .NET client technology e.g., C# on Win App or WP8 or Silverlight. If so ... we have one of those ... it's called DevForce (http://www.ideablade.com). Is that what you meant?
