Works with the latest Backbone 0.9.2!
Possibly the most anticipated PeepCode screencast this year, it’s Backbone.js!
As web browsers have become more capable, developers have started to write more complex client-side applications. Yet as applications become more complex, they become more difficult to write, debug, and maintain.
Backbone works well as a client for almost any server-side web language or framework, including Rails, Django, PHP, .Net, or Java.
We’ve been writing Backbone.js applications for internal use over the last 9 months and have learned a lot about how to do it well. Get up to speed with our Backbone.js tutorials!
A Ruby web server is included for running the files. This requires a copy of Ruby (on Mac, Windows, or Linux). Or, a static version of the final application is included that runs directly in a web browser.
