Book Description

It’s easy to let a project get out of hand and become completely unmaintainable. However, this can be avoided by building a nicely-structured Backbone.js application. When working on a web application involving a lot of JavaScript, applications may end up as tangled piles of jQuery selectors and callbacks, all trying frantically to sync between the HTML UI, JavaScript logic, and the database on your server. With Backbone.js, you represent your data as models that can be created, validated, destroyed, and saved to the server.

Instant Backbone.js Application Development is a beginner-friendly book that will guide you through a step-by-step process to go from an empty project directory to a fully-functioning web application. The book also includes code samples that are easy to use and will guide you through the major features that Backbone.js has to offer.

Instant Backbone.js Application Development looks at the main types of objects that Backbone.js offers and has you instantiate specialized versions of each. These objects are stored in their own individual files and work together to build well-structured applications.

Your data will be stored using Collections and Models and presented to the user through Views and Templates. URLs will remain pretty and your browsing history will still work thanks to the Routing functionality. You will also learn how to build a JavaScript Single Page Application that communicates smoothly with your backend server using AJAX.
