SharePoint 2013 has a powerful new feature known alternately as JSLink (when working in SharePoint)and Client-Side Rendering, or CSR (in the Microsoft literature). Either way, the point is the same… this code runs on the client side, meaning after the page loads. […] Client-Side Rendering is pretty straightforward, but takes a little understanding of how the JSLink functionality performs in order to get things just right.
This article will cover the changes between how we used REST in 2010 and what we need to ‚update‘ for using the streamlined interface in SharePoint 2013.
When creating SharePoint 2013 apps, you often need contextual information about the app and the user. This contextual information includes things like the URL of the host web or the account claim of the current user.

JS Link is a new web part property in many SharePoint 2013 web parts. It allows users and developers to create Client-Side Rendering (CSR) solutions within SharePoint 2013. In other words, it allows alternate formatting, data and functionality to be manipulated within a web part.
