We just released two new apiNG plugins:
In v1.3 there is a new build-in plugin available: XML. With this Plugin, you are able to load data from local and external XML files.
The important german frontend magazine t3n published an article about apiNG: http://t3n.de/news/angularjs-modul-aping-686160/
In v1.2.3 we released a new built-in plugin, named localStorage.
With this plugin, you can load data from the browsers local storage.
Good news: in v1.1 we removed jQuery from apiNG core and from all apiNG plugins.
