BackboneBlog: A Reference Project
To help round out my blog series on Backbone, I wrote a little reference app a few months back to help me keep my bearings whilst building large scale client applications.
At the time, I was contracting with a local startup that was building a fairly complex client/server web app. The front end was all written in Backbone (and the back end in Java/Spring). On this project, our dev team was distributed. Half of our team was working in a remote location, with the other half located in Scottsdale.
As I became more involved in the project, I began to realize that we needed a bit more cohesion in our client side coding efforts. I think I was a little late to the game on that, but I think (hope) some found it helpful. Anyway, here it is: BackboneBlog.
It’s a little out of date at this point. I need to update the Require.js implementation to the latest version. That’ll allow me to cut more unnecessary code via the (lib).require.js module shims for the projects that don’t support AMD, along with a few other odds and ends.
I hope you find it helpful. Feel free to fork it and play around with it. If you end up finding any bugs or adding anything to it, please shoot me a pull request. :)
