Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you want to build your sites frontend with the single-page application (SPA) model, this hands-on book shows you how to get the job done with Backbone.js. Youll learn how to create structured JavaScript applications, using Backbones own flavor of model-view-controller (MVC) architecture.

Start with the basics of MVC, SPA, and Backbone, then get your hands dirty building sample applications—a simple Todo list app, a RESTful book library app, and a modular app with Backbone and RequireJS. Author Addy Osmani, an engineer for Googles Chrome team, also demonstrates advanced uses of the framework.

  • Learn how Backbone.js brings MVC benefits to the client-side
  • Write code that can be easily read, structured, and extended
  • Work with the Backbone.Marionette and Thorax extension frameworks
  • Solve common problems youll encounter when using Backbone.js
  • Organize your code into modules with AMD and RequireJS
  • Paginate data for your Collections with the Backbone.Paginator plugin
  • Bootstrap a new Backbone.js application with boilerplate code
  • Use Backbone with jQuery Mobile and resolve routing problems between the two
  • Unit-test your Backbone apps with Jasmine, QUnit, and SinonJS

Synopsis:

If youre looking to use the single-page application model to build your sites frontend, Backbone.js is an ideal framework for the job. This practical guide provides all the information you need to create structured JavaScript applications using Backbone.js and its unique flavor of the model-view-controller (MVC) architecture.

Youll start with the essentials of Backbones models, views, collections, and routers, and then dive into methods for building RESTful applications with modern technology stacks. Author Addy Osmani also demonstrates advanced uses of the framework, as well as ways to conduct unit tests.

  • Learn MVC fundamentals to help you understand the framework
  • Build Backbone apps with Node.js, Express, Mongoose, and MongoDB
  • Create applications with the Ruby, Sinatra, Haml, and MongoDB stack
  • Cleanly wrap units of application code into manageable modules
  • Decouple Backbone with the Mediator and Facade patterns
  • Resolve routing problems between Backbone and jQuery Mobile
  • Unit test Backbone apps with Jasmine or QUnit and SinonJS

Synopsis:

Get a complete run-down of the popular Backbone.js framework for structuring JavaScript applications. This practical guide takes you through Model-view-controller (MVC) theory, and shows you how to build applications using Backbone's models, views, collections and routers. Youll also learn advanced topics such as modular development with Backbone.js and RequireJS.

This detailed book provides an authoritative and centralized repository of information to help you develop real-world apps with Backbone.

  • Build applications using modern tech stacks, including Node and Express
  • Solve the routing problems with Backbone and jQuery Mobile
  • Get tips about scaffolding tools
