Backbone Redis

Technologies

  • Node
  • Express
  • Backbone
  • Socket.io
  • Redis

Installation

The project can be installed via NPM, or by cloning this repo into your project.

npm install backbone-redis

or

git clone git://github.com/sorensen/backbone-redis.git

NodeJS Server Configuration

To begin using the module, you must first create an express server, configure the redis server that you will be using, and then to tell 'Sync' to listen to the app, which is basically a wrapper for the Socket.io listen() method.

var express         = require('express'),
    Sync            = require('sync'),
    app              = module.exports = express.createServer();

Configure Redis client

Sync.configure(6379, '127.0.0.1', {
    maxReconnectionAttempts: 10
});

Listen to the express server

Sync.listen(app);

Client Configuration

Setting up on the client is just as easy, we are basically setting the Socket.io port that we will be using for data transmition.

window.store = new Store({
    port : 8080,
    secure : ('https :' == document.location.protocol)
});

Thats it! The point of the module is to override Backbone.sync and provide a seamless interface to data persistance.
