angular-data Stories in Backlog Stories in Ready Stories in progress

Inspired by Ember Data, Angular-data is the model layer Angular is missing. It consists of a convenient in-memory cache for managing your data, and several adapters for communicating with various persistence layers.
By default angular-data uses the http adapter–perfect for communicating with your RESTful backend. It includes a localStorage adapter, and another localforage adapter is also available. More adapters are coming, and you're free to implement your own.
Unlike Backbone and Ember Models, angular-data does not require the use of getters and setters, and doesn't wrap your data with custom classes if you don't want it to. Angular-data's internal dirty-checking (via observe-js or Object.observe in supporting browsers) allows for powerful use cases and an easy avenue for implementing your own 3-way data-binding.
Supporting relations, computed properties, model lifecycle control and a slew of other features, angular-data is the tool for giving your data the respect it deserves.
Latest Release: 1.5.3
Angular-data is finally 1.0.!
Angular-data 1.x will continue to see bug fixes, but most new development will be on js-data and js-data-angular (Angular-data 2.0).

A note about Angular-data 2.0 (in development)

See angular-data/pull/198.

Quick Start

bower install --save angular-data or npm install --save angular-data.
var app = angular.module('myApp', ['angular-data.DS']);

app.factory('Post', function (DS) {
  // Simplest resource definition
  return DS.defineResource('post');
});
app.factory('Comment', function (DS) {
  return DS.defineResource('comment');
});

app.controller('postCtrl', function ($scope, $routeParams, Post, Comment) {
  // it's up to your server to know how to interpret this query
  // or you can teach angular-data how to understand your servers' query language
  var query = {
    postId: $routeParams.id
  };

  Post.find($routeParams.id);
  Comment.findAll(query);

  // My goodness this was easy
  Post.bindOne($scope, 'post', $routeParams.id);
  Comment.bindAll($scope, 'comments', query);

  // Long form, functionally the same as above
  $scope.$watch(function () {
    return Post.lastModified($routeParams.id);
  }, function () {
    $scope.post = Post.get($routeParams.id);
  });
  $scope.$watch(function () {
    // Changes when anything in the Comment collection is modified
    return Comment.lastModified();
  }, function () {
    $scope.comments = Comment.filter(query);
  });
});
