what's the purpose to make data file dynamic?

I saw milonic use menu.php as data file. Why not use menu.js instead? If use menu.php, the data file will be loaded everytime. If using js, it could be cached.

What is the pupose of making anything dynamic on a page (not just a menu)? Could be the user membership status, the day of the week, class level (Freshman, Sophomore, etc.), specials only available on Friday - the list is endless. Sometimes the flexibility of dynamic is just needed.

If the menu content changes a lot, it's better to use dynamic one. Thanks for your clearification, John.

Absolutely correct. Otherwise you'd have a pile of _data files and mass confusion :!: :D
