If you are using Backbone.js with Rails 3 and are noticing that your authenticity token is not being passed in with Backbone's XHR calls, include this code and run it like so:

BackboneRailsAuthTokenAdapter.fixSync(Backbone);

The default method of operation assumes Rails' csrf_meta_tag call has already happened and that jQuery and Backbone are present. Thus it's best to run this code after Backbone, jQuery, and the metatag have been loaded but *before* your Backbone app makes its first request.

This code was adapted from:
