Today I was able to clean up my controller and router functions. I had a crap ton of console.log() calls to try and figure out what this is in any particular situation, and if I can call things like get('model') and get('store') on it.
Also cleaned up the Flask server. Had a gaggle of routes that took URL arguments as parameters to query against the database. The whole REST HTTP method things is pretty awesome. Cut down like 8 routes to just 2. Though inside those routes you then have to add some if statements to handle the different HTTP methods. Well that's what I did at least, there are probably other ways to take care of business.
I need to post some code at some point.
