    client-side MVC

    Hi. As an example letīs say that Ruby on Rails - RoR does a great job with MVC pattern in the server-side, plus itīs
    integrated with great javascript libraries: scriptaculous and prototype,
    but these libraries are not mvc frwrks. (not that this is a problem)

    Itīs yet a relatively new topic, but I think client-side mvc frwrks are
    catching up. To name a few:

    1. JavascriptMVC: javascriptmvc [dot] com
    2. SproutCore: sproutcore [dot] com
    3. TrimPath Junction: code [dot] google [dot] com/p/trimpath/wiki/TrimJunction
    4. Axiom Stack: axiomstack [dot] com
    5. Archetype : archetypejs [dot] org

    And now comes the doubts:

    1. Is it really a good idea to use mvc pattern in the client-side?
    2. If so, mixing directory structure from some client-side frwrk with
    RoR will be very confusing
    3. Maybe the best thing is wait until RoR integrate some of this frwrks?

    Iīd like to hear some personal opinions on this subject.

    I might be persuaded but I don't see how the MVC pattern could be useful on the client-side only.

    Although iīm reading and kind of studying the samples at thoses websites, I also have difficulties identifying MVC pattern in client-side ... i do agree that having some kind of pattern to follow in the client in order to achieve some standard way to develop the client-side part would definitely be very welcome.
