So i finally got a chance to install the SAFE browser and had a go at a simple CRUD app: safe://simple.crud. BTW I found the video that @jimmyhacksthings posted below was a useful resource
I don’t have a lot of experience building web apps so the code probably sucks. I haven’t yet figured out how to update a specific field as opposed to the whole record. It would be great if someone could create a really simple CRUD tutorial that uses only JS/JQuery as opposed to a framework, or perhaps take what i’ve done and clean it up.
