Knockoutjs : components

Component is one of the awesome thing in knockoutjs. It makes code more manageable, reusable and help you to code cleanly. Separating functionality in components make coding easier. You can create your own controls and use it anywhere in your project. You can have nesting of components. You can break your sections into small reusable controls or you can have entire section of application in one component. For nesting of components there is option to pass data to child components through parameters. Same way for child to parent communication there is callback functionality. As components can get asynchronously loaded or

Knockout js : Custom binding

In my previous knockout.js post, I just gave introduction and explained how knockout works. We learnt about how knockout uses bindings to make UI dynamic and how it connects to the view model In this article we will learn custom binding. There are built in bindings like click, value, text, visible and so on. But you are not restricted to use only those binding , you can create your own custom binding.

Dependency Injection

Dependency Injection MVC design pattern enables separation of concerns. Helping us to develop more independent components in our application. This is how we can implement loose coupling, and it helps testing and maintenance of our application easy. So Dependency Injection helps in making your application’s components more loosely coupled. There are software design patterns out of which Dependency Injection(DI) is the one that allows us to develop loosely coupled code, which greatly reduces tight coupling between developed components. DI enables us to manage changes and other complexity in our application. The purpose of DI is to make code
