Data access lies at the heart of a great deal of interactive content. Dataset solves common problems with the traversal, manipulation and management of that data
Unlike client-side frameworks that focus on entity modelling, Dataset is designed exclusively for working with matrices/tables of data. This allows a rich set of number crunching capabilities and helps optimise the handling of large numbers of rows
In addition to helping load and parse data, Dataset makes it easy to query and select subsets of data, creating "views" that automatically update when the underlying data changes. By binding to events, it's easy to create interfaces onto realtime or user-manipulated data. Dataset provides some standard computations such as min and max and derivatives such as groupings and moving averages.
Dataset was created in a way that allows a high degree of extension. We are looking forward to expanding our array of importers, parsers and computational methods.
