I am trying to decide on a set of tools to use for a new web app I am going to build.
I want it to be really interactive and work using Ajax (i.e. no page refreshes etc). It will also have a UI for mobile devices like the iPhone
Does anyone have any views on what tools I should use?
My only concern is using Yii and Knockout together, is it a bit overkill with two MVC frameworks?
Should I also be looking at HTML5 more?Answer1:
Knockout is client side, and it is MVVM - Model-View-View-Model. You could update Knockout models via AJAX json from Yii controller, and knockout will update user interface accordingly.
