…like to discuss generating and organizing views. MVC in iOS is a little different from MVC in Ruby on Rails, in that views are a little more tightly coupled to the controller. View elements are ultimately defined and positioned in the controller. Those elements will rely on methods which should be defined in the controller as they deal with event handling and navigation. Let's take a simple example. I want a screen to have a table and when I tap a row I want to navigate to another screen. …
Until then, it seems to me that putting hypermedia principles front-and-center is suboptimal. It's akin to telling someone who wants to use your website that they need to understand MVC patterns first. It's only going to discourage and confuse them.

In other words, instead of asking the Controller setup the View, we're asking the View to setup the Controller.
A different transport backend …
