Beginning Backbone.js is
your step-by-step guide to learning and using the Backbone.js library in your web projects.
Backbone.js is one of the most popular JavaScript libraries among web
developers, used to create modular, single-page web apps. This book takes you
from downloading Backbone.js and its dependencies all the way to using more
advanced libraries to structure your application architecture, and everything
in between.

With a real-world, practical approach, you will learn
how you can integrate Backbone.js into the center of your JavaScript stack, and
create scalable applications. James Sugrue shows you how to implement all
aspects of templating, work efficiently with RequireJS, and fully understand
Grunt and all its plug-ins. Armed with this knowledge you'll be able to
architect a continuous integration system that is key to real-world

With the explosion of JavaScript-based applications on
the web, the need for more structured approaches to code management is
more important than ever. Backbone.js helps create applications that
separate models from views, enabling developers to avoid spaghetti code. Beginning
will gently guide you into this amazingly powerful
library, and help you ramp up to building professional applications. Integrate
Backbone.js into your work today with this indispensable book.

What you’ll learn

  • Learn the importance of MVC approaches in software development

  • Learn why Backbone.js is so popular and how to integrate it into your JavaScript stack

  • Understand core Backbone.js concepts such as models, views, routers, and events 

  • Test your application using the latest JavaScript testing tools

  • Create build scripts using Grunt.js to simplify your build and deployment workflow 

  • Use additional libraries to build on the power of Backbone.js

  • Avoid common beginner errors and code using best practices

Who this book is for

Beginning Backbone.js is for the web developer who is already confident with JavaScript, but who is keen to build larger, single-page web apps. If you want to introduce more structure, quality, and process to your web application using Backbone.js, and other leading JavaScript technologies, this is the book for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book, for the most part; one-star reviews here are mostly unjustified 11. Januar 2015
Von Amazon Jason - Veröffentlicht auf
My rating would be 4.5 stars, if Amazon only allowed that much granularity in ratings.

Overall, this is a very good book, and one that really helped me "get it" with respect to Backbone.js. Some of the other (negative) reviews here are simply not justified, to put it politely; because of this, the book should have a higher rating. As one example, it is just not true AT ALL that (as one review puts it, in all caps) "this book has no examples." It has copious examples, including a very helpful tutorial chapter that takes you through the creation of a whole (albeit small) Twitter app. (The reviewer who says otherwise also mistakenly thinks that the book has only six chapters (it has twelve), so take that for what it's worth.) As another example, a different negative review says that "the author didn't take you through steps at all." The reviewer does say this with respect to "the chapters [he's] read," so maybe he just didn't read much of the book... But that's not a very good excuse for a negative (especially one-star) review. The author *does* take you through the steps, especially in the tutorial chapter I mentioned above -- he explains how to set up an app with Twitter, then how to get the appropriate API tokens for accessing the app's data, then how to use them to pull tweets from Twitter into your JavaScript, then how to create templates, models, and views for this pulled-in data, and so on, one step after the other.

There *are* some negatives to the book, and some of them are mentioned in other reviews. For example, there are a few spots where there are missing spaces in the text (though, as far as I've noticed, they are pretty rare and shouldn't really cause much of an issue), and there are some issues related to the versions of software used at times (the book uses Express version 3 for the little Node.js server that it has you set up; the current version of Express is 4, though, and it doesn't work quite the same -- see the end of this review for a work-around). In addition, one bit of "weirdness" (for lack of a better term) that I noticed is the author's use of 'self' instead of 'this' in many of the examples. This is not an error, since the author assigns 'this' to a 'self' variable whenever he does it. It's just that, in many of the examples, this step is unnecessary. It's pretty much only necessary as a way of dealing with JavaScript closures, but the author performs this step even when closures are nowhere in sight. This made me worry that the examples would mix up some readers when it comes to understanding 'this' in JavaScript (and it made me worry that the author might've been a little mixed up about this as well, though I suppose that's probably not the case). You should probably have at least a decent understanding of 'this' before reading this book anyway, though.

Despite the negatives just mentioned (and they seem fairly minor to me), the book has been clear, helpful, and informative. I actually found it to be better -- at least specifically as an *introduction* to Backbone.js -- than Addy Osmani's more popular "Developing Backbone.js Applications" (no disrespect to Addy intended, though). That's because this book introduces materials in what seemed to me to be a more natural, logical progression, and in a way that more completely explains the connections between concepts. I don't say that this book is the better one in *all* aspects of Backbone.js development, but it seems to serve its purpose (*beginning* Backbone.js) very well. I recommend it.


Here's the work-around for using Express 4 with the little Node.js server (in the book's Chapter 6) as opposed to Express 3:

1. At the top of server.js, after the line of code in the book that reads (without quotes) "var app = express();", add this line:

var bodyParser = require('body-parser');

2. Use npm to install the body-parser package:

npm install body-parser

3. Change the code in the book that reads:

app.configure(function() {

To just this:

app.use(bodyParser.urlencoded({ extended: true }));

That's it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful book full of real-world examples 28. August 2014
Von H.B. - Veröffentlicht auf
A very well written introduction to BackboneJS with many good examples and a complete App written from scratch.

This book explains in great detail all important parts of Backbone (views, routers, models, collections, events etc.).
Additionally you'll find information about the two very popular extensions of BackboneJS: Thorax & MarionetteJS!

This is a truly wonderful book and I recommend it!

Thumbs up!

If you're a beginner at Backbone, this is a decent book. After a few chapters, you'll start to realize there's very little to Backbone. You may even hop over to Angular, which has so much more to offer.
