Dynamic Script Request API

I updated the Tagneto website with a document describing the Dynamic Script Request API, and Tagneto's support of it through the Srvr.js library. The goal of the API is to make it possible to reliably use dynamically added SCRIPT SRC elements to load data and UI. It also makes it possible to send up more data to the server via multipart requests. This should make it easier to access web APIs across server domains (something XMLHTTPRequest normally cannot do). The limitation being the cross server web API must return JavaScript.

This document is another revision of the API first described in this post.

The changes to Srvr.js to support this API are not in the 0.3.0 release of Tagneto. Either grab from CVS or a later version of Tagneto (if available).
