As part of my interest in developer tools I'm looking into a dynamic table builder, so the user can select and object and then see the data in table form.

The first step is to get a list of all objects. In Javascript the rest api's Describe Global resource: https://na1.salesforce.com/services/d... -H "Authorization: Bearer token

seems like it give the necessary information.

Anybody tried this ?

Whoa!!! This would be nutso to build I think. The models and components would need to be dynamically created. It's possible but I think you would really really really really want it very badly. I've been down this path of creating a model and component dynamically and it was no picnic for a somewhat straightforward use case.
