Widget templates: the application is now fetching widgets in html format, there is a function which fixes the links and another one making some minor changes to the DOM. I'm using the website CSS stylesheet and overriding a few properties in my main.css file. Using custom templates is still possible, if the application finds the corresponding template file for a widget, it will retrieve data using JSON and render the template, otherwise it will use the HTML approach. I disabled the templates I did and tried to use javascript/css to modify the html widgets. The ones I implemented / tested so far are Gene's Overview, Location and Sequence. I committed the changes so you can have a look at how it looks like going to /index.html#object/gene/WBGene00015146

Documentation: I uploaded a first version on the wiki. Let me know what you think of it.

Offline caching: it has not been implemented yet. I've done some research and I found that there are plugins for backbone which will hopefully save a lot of time, even through I'll probably need to make some changes to it.
