Developing Backbone.js Applications is a book about the Backbone.js library for structuring JavaScript applications. Backbone.js is a lightweight JavaScript library that adds structure to your client-side code. Developers frequently use Backbone.js to create single-page applications (SPAs). SPAs are web applications that load into the browser and then react to data changes on the client side without requiring complete page refreshes from the server.

This book provides a thorough 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. You will 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

This book is targeted at novice to intermediate developers wishing to learn how to better structure their client-side code.
