v0.9.1 Build
Status Dependency Status

Maintained by Tim Branyen @tbranyen, Mike Pennisi @jugglinmike, Simon Boudrias @SBoudrias, and @ssafejava with help from awesome contributors!

Provides a logical foundation for assembling layouts and views within Backbone. Designed to be adaptive and configurable for painless integration. Well tested, with full code coverage, in both the browser and Node.js environments.

Depends on Underscore, Backbone, and jQuery. You can swap out the dependencies with a custom configuration.


Migrating from 0.8

Release notes

  • Fixed regression from 0.8->0.9 where the new AMD wrapper would fail to work correctly in an r.js build.
  • Fixed regression from 0.8->0.9 where the Node.js branch code was not updated correctly and lack of default fetchTemplate tests didn't report the failure.

Full Release Log


Please read and follow the contribution guide before contributing.

Running the unit tests in the browser

Open test/index.html in your favorite browser to ensure LayoutManager works as expected.

Running the unit tests headless

Install Node.js, Grunt.js 0.4, and run npm install inside the project directory.

Make sure you've installed grunt-cli globally with:

[sudo] npm install grunt-cli -g

Run grunt inside a terminal in the project directory to run the tests in both a headless browser and Node.js environment.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
