Yes we have several blogs covering these. Check: and for examples.

Also, feel free to browse as there may be other examples relevant to you.

These examples use the technique of getting the data from the server using a client side API and then populating a data source.

As you pointed out, you could potentially compute the JSON data for your data source server side and store it in an object field – there are various trade-off of doing one versus the other – it depends on your own situation whether you want to use one or the other.
