You build web apps, and you’ve seen the shift towards highly interactive, rich client-side web applications. Over the past years, we’ve seen the same things, and have built our apps, processes, and best practices around this. Learn the better way to build rich, interactive applications using Backbone.js and Rails.
In addition to the book (in HTML, PDF, EPUB, and Kindle formats), you also get a complete example application.
The book is written using Markdown and distributed via GitHub. When you purchase, we give you access directly to the repository, so you can use the GitHub comment and issue features to give us feedback about what we’ve written and what you’d like to see. Last but not least, also included is a complete sample Backbone.js and Rails application. What the book describes and explains, the example app demonstrates with real, working code. Fully up to date for Rails 3.2 and Backbone 1.0.
The included example application illustrates a Rails 3.2 app with user authentication, nested model relationships, bootstrapped and lazily populated collections, and complete test coverage using Cucumber, RSpec, and Jasmine.
