comment Dynamically get default display form url in sharepoint 2013 by REST or JSOM
Try data.value. It could alter if you use SPO, on premise or through an app. What you can do is to call console.log(data) and you will see the object structure in say Chrome dev tools. Another option is to view it in Dev tools network tab. Yet another is to set break point and inspect data variable.

comment help in adding a http link in script editor - cant get it to work
What are the forward slashes for? Wouldn't that just make the attribute values into regular expressions?

comment SharePoint 2013 REST how to add pagination?
Have you checked your console? Could it be a problem with copy/paste programming? Anyway, here is some code you can add directly into script editor Web Part, just to get you going: gist.github.com/eirikb/9961411d6e879b943eb2

comment 400 Bad Request while trying to add a user to a group using ShP 2013 REST api
Yeah ok now I see what you mean. JSON itself will of course use backslash to escape (ref JSON.stringify('\\')). But still, the link you provide is about URLs and URIs and not post body, and not even JSON, which is why I was confused :)

comment 400 Bad Request while trying to add a user to a group using ShP 2013 REST api
I just have to ask; how is restricted characters for WCF related to post body in REST? You don't need to escape them in the post body. Maybe if you use them as keys in a JSON object, but I don't even know how to test that (and that is not what OP has anyway)

@robert-lindgren did you just accidentally solve the question when cleaning/editing it (adding tow backslashes)? :D

Have you looked at the respone message content? I think it might be helpful for you. If you are uncertain where to find it consider using Fiddler, Wireshark or similar.

comment How to get deferred object for sharepoint rest queries
Sounds like you want to use $.ajax({async:false}) and drop promises. While that is possible, IMHO it's a bad idea. Returning a promise is a good thing, even if it adds some lines to the library usage. E.g., what would you do if you wanted to bundle several requests and wait for all of them to finish? With a promise that is superdupereasy

comment How to get deferred object for sharepoint rest queries
The object you get back is the promise, not the data. It's not synchronous, so you would do something like RESTQueries.readItemsFromList().then(function(data) { console.log(data); });

comment SharePoint 2013 REST how to add pagination?
@MehdiJalal the explanation above should be a sufficient starting point IMHO, after all you might want to implement this in smart-table, ng-grid, ngtable or the other pals and so the code would be quite different. However I will oblige and spoon-feed you as soon as I get home from work in some hours

comment SharePoint 2013 REST how to add pagination?
I don't think $skip works @pholpar, my example above does, it's how I do it on SharePoint online at least (just look at _next when you query /Items).

comment Automatic Bootstrap Tabs in SharePoint
If you can stick with one version of jQuery that is the best. I'll just copy/move my top comment to question in order to snag a point.

comment Automatic Bootstrap Tabs in SharePoint
There are several ways, you might be able to use jQuery.noConflict. When it comes to SharePoint I usually just use requirejs (or browserify), although that might be a bit much

comment Automatic Bootstrap Tabs in SharePoint
That means jQuery.fn.tab is undefined, which means the jQuery version you are working on does not have Bootstrap tabs appended to it. This could be the result of many things, such as not including the bootstrap script, or order of scripts, or having several versions of jQuery on the same page

comment URL field in sharepoint : Points to Control Template when http removed
The most simple straight forward answer would be to just do something like this with UriBuilder. But I suspect you have thought about this since you ask?

comment Transfer times for REST API queries vary a lot
I just have to ask; why would REST need more round trips than JSOM? In the example query by OP there is one single query for items, and this can be made smaller by using $select. If additional data is needed $expand will give much the same stuff as JSOM without additional request. I would say it is the contrary, the JSON response from REST can be smaller than the bloated one from JSOM

comment How to trim down date to example 2014-10-10?
getMonth() starts at 0, for the fun of it. Just do ` + (d.getMonth() + 1) + ...`. Note the parentheses here, they are important.

comment Combine REST query “GetItems” action with OData $filter parameter
@John-o I probably misunderstood a bit. Using only CAML is what I do today, I combine view query with my own custom query (see my answer below). I thought Vadim meant to not use view query but just make my own CAML from ground up. This is the most correct answer then :)

comment Combine REST query “GetItems” action with OData $filter parameter
Sorry but this doesn't answer my question. I know I can rewrite CAML to $filter, but I don't have any tool to magically convert ViewQuery to $filter. Note that, as I said, $top actually works, no need to "convert" that. I'm very tempted to upvote just because you say that query can be moved to POST data instead of querystring, which is very important, but it's more a comment than an answer IMHO.
