I want to use the improved OData/REST API in Sharepoint 2013 but it's hard to find good examples. As I see it, the OData-endpoint is of little use without a dedicated OData client library. With plain jQuery there's so much boilerplate I'd might as well just use JSOM and CAML.
So far I've found data.js, a low level library and JayData and Breeze.js, both depend on data.js. I have yet to find any code samples with any of these libraries being used in the context of Sharepoint.
Does anyone else have any know how on the subject?
