However this has led me to a problem - obviously to test the basic functionality (e.g. getting my account balance) I need to put in my secure banking details
You're doing end-to-end testing and unit testing at the same time it sounds.

Don't do that. Distribute your unit tests. They show patterns of use of the API you are writing.

Keep your end-to-end tests closest to your QA group (yourself likely). They are more brittle, unlike unit tests. Unit tests are small, discrete. end-to-end layers your unit tests in ways that can break when integrated, lack a perfect environment or are configured in odd ways.

Persons w/ a large POV will value them more because they are more likely to find edge case bugs.

[Corion]: Meh. I think I have now the parts down that I want from a simple Javascript frontend for single-page- applications with a aPerl backend. But it seems that all Javascript templating modules either don't support two-way binding (which would be nice) or ...
[Corion]: ... don't support server-side precompilation (which means the client has to compile all templates to Javascript themselves), or are giant frameworks that expect to do everything (which is not what I want)
[Corion]: I feel that there is a talk somewhere in there, either about the structure and parts, or how I used several parts to get a complete whole.
[Corion]: Maybe I can still find something that is compatible with handlebars.js (which has JS precompilation) but allows for two-way data binding (which is great for the UI)
