External Widget Plugin Framework RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to create a framework which should have the capability to plugin new widgets (controls) at runtime. Only some configuration/admin screen should be required to add new control.

    The website is Single Page Application like Facebook and the idea is to switch the list view (new feeds) with table, network graph, etc. These new views are supposed be added at runtime.

    The data can be available at client-side in JSON objects or it can be obtained from the server-side of the host website.

    One way could be iFrames. Another option could be jQuery Widgets.

    I am confused right now.

    Please suggest. Any already existing framework for such scenario? Any approach?
