Developing Backbone.js Applications: Building Better JavaScript Applications (PDF)

Adnan Osmani | 2013 | ISBN: 1449328253 | English | 374 pages | PDF | 13 MB

If you want to build your site’s frontend with the single-page application (SPA) model, this hands-on book shows you how to get the job done with Backbone.js. You’ll learn how to create structured javascript applications, using Backbone’s 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 Google’s 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
