jLinq - Going Online!

This blog is focused on being about general development along with a lot of discussion about my projects I'm currently working on. I've cleared out all of my other blogs and created this one so it can be a broader discussion about development than the others could be.

jLinq is the main project I'll be posting about for now. jLinq is similar to LINQ for .NET, but it is used in Javascript. It's especially useful for working with medium sized arrays of information that won't be changing.

Most of the time people use AJAX to make calls to their server and download the information they need. jLinq allows you use many of the same functions you use in LINQ, but against existing data on the page.

One of the most important parts of jLinq was that I wanted it to be easy to extend. In fact, at one point the whole jLinq library was wiped and started over and built around an extensibility framework! I wanted the extensibility to work so well that even the core functions of jLinq was built around it!

I'll blog more about using jLinq, but for now the best thing you can do is try it out on my website! Please leave me feedback about what you think!

Documentation is still in progress, but there are a lot of handy tutorials that will get you started!
