Backbone.js

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — michaelangela @ 3:10 am

Backbone.js is catching on and for good reason. It’s not heavy weight like SproutCore or Cappucino, gets  you going quickly, and gets out of your way. Some folks complain that is’t not full-featured enough. But that’s because it’s designed to be light weight and über extensible. It doesn’t do what you want? Extend it! Using it’s own built in .extend or with the now 100% completely indispensible underscore.js, it’s only required dependecy.

Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.
