7. Developing Backbone.js Applications by Addy Osmani
Learn the essentials of Backbone’s models, views, collections, events, and routers. The book also looks at two popular Backbone add-ons: MarionetteJS and Thorax. Marionette simplifies your Backbone application code with robust views and architecture solutions. Thorax is used to build meaty Backbone applications.

The 4 books:
- Backbone – continues building the website using Backbone.js to create single-page interfaces for some more complex user interaction.
- Ember – builds out completely different parts of the website using Ember.js to create complex client-side interactions.

9. DOM Enlightenment by Cody Lindley
DOM Enlightenment teaches you how to manipulate HTML more efficiently by scripting the Document Object Model (DOM) without a DOM library. Using code examples in cookbook style, the author explains modern DOM concepts to illustrate how various node objects work.
The book is targeted at developers who want to understand the purpose and value provided by jQuery for scripting the DOM. The author also wants to help developers tasked with scripting web documents that only run on modern browsers.
- Node overview – examines node object types, properties and methods for working nodes, getting a nodes value and more.
- Document nodes – includes document child nodes, detecting DOM specifications/features using document.implementation.hasFeature().
- Element nodes – create elements, get the tag name of an element, verifying an element has a specific attribute and more.
- Element node selecting – selecting/creating a NodeList, contextual element selecting, and more.
- Element node geometry & scrolling geometry – shows how to use getBoundingClientRect(), elementFromPoint(), scrollHeight, scrollWidth, scrollIntoView().
- Element nodes inline style – CSS properties.
- Text nodes – good treatment on manipulating text.
- DocumentFragment nodes – creation and use of DocumentFragment nodes.
- CSS style sheets & CSS rules – including how to create a new inline CSS style sheet.
- DOM events – DOM event types, the event flow, adding event listeners to element nodes, window object, and document object.
- Creating dom.js.
