[Buildbot-devel] Fwd: Nodejs with python

We are using angularjs framework to do the data binding in the browser.

Then the model if fetched via the new REST api of buildbot nine, and
updated via SSE.

You can find a bit more information here:

a proof of concept of this mechanics is available here:

But I dont like the api it is providing.

I'd like to have an api similar to restangular:
which does not have automatic update via SSE

so I'd like to have a similar technic that is used in FireBase angular

so this will do something like

buildbotService.get("builders").get(1234).get("logs").getAll($scope, 'logs')
or maybe:
buildbotService.builders().get(1234).logs().getAll($scope, 'logs')
if I do the getattr syntax sugar trick.

(I'd like to have other devs feedback on this, before I start)
