You may have heard that PhoneGap recently added support for Windows Phone 7 (WP7), which means that PhoneGap can now be used it to develop HTML5-based applications for that platform as well.  This week we have been treated to a unique tutorial on Tombstoning with PhoneGap and Knockout.js, a library that simplifies dynamic JavaScript UIs by applying the MVVM pattern.  Here's an exerpt from the tutorial:

There are numerous JavaScript UI frameworks available (MVC, MVP, MVVM), however, because I feel tombstoning lends itself particularly well to the MVVM pattern, I decided to give KnockoutJS a try. When reading about this framework you will find references to WPF and Silverlight, it is clear that it has been heavily inspired by the Microsoft XAML frameworks.  --Colin Eberhardt
