JavaScript: Using Closure Space to Create Real Private Members

via JavaScript: Using Closure Space to Create Real Private Members | NOUPE.

I recently developed Angular Cloud Data Connector, which enables Angular developers to use cloud data, specifically Azure mobile service, using web standards like indexed DB.
