At the moment, it is not possible to use a "foreach" binding in a template if it iterates over an array (or ObservableList) that is not an object (such as an array of strings or numbers).

This happens because of how we create a new context (by creating a new object whose prototype is the original data). At that point, we need to verify that what we received actually is an object and create one if it isn't.


<ul bind="
    foreach: component.values
        <li><span bind="text: $item"></span></li>

The above example doesn't work if the values property is an Array/ObservableList of Strings.

This issue should be fixed in jidejs/ui/bind.js createContext function.
