A friend of mine suggested I split off my my data layer portion from my heraldry project and put it up on GitHub and include it in my other project. I've got one little part I found online that I am checking on the license, but should be posting pretty soon. If the license isn't compatible I'll need to write something to fill in that piece. Basically it connects a MariaDB to an Object Layer and has a RESTful API. I've got a nice example file that uses Knockout to connect to the API.
