Backbone.js is an open source, JavaScript library. It gives structure to web 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 API over a RESTful JSON interface.

Backbone.js Blueprints helps readers learn how to build web applications from scratch. Readers will learn how to use all the components of the Backbone framework individually, and use them together to create fully featured applications. Users will also learn how to write good server-side JavaScript to support frontend applications. This easy-to-follow guide is packed with projects, code, and solid explanations.

Backbone.js Blueprints covers the following topics:
Chapter 1: Building a Simple Blog
Chapter 2: Building a Photo-sharing Application
Chapter 3: Building a Live Data Dashboard
Chapter 4: Building a Calendar
Chapter 5: Building a Chat Application
Chapter 6: Building a Podcast Application
Chapter 7: Building a Game
