Creating a Backend Implementation

Your implementation will not directly modify TodoMVC. Instead, it will only respond to API requests prefixed with /api/ following the specification.


If Node.js is a part of your implementation's stack, you may use todomvc-api (npm) to validate your API, then todomvc (npm) to pull in the front-end dependencies and Express server. If your own project involves Express, see gcloud-node-todos for an example.

The TodoMVC frontend implementations (e.g. AngularJS, Backbone.js, etc) can be brought into your project as a dependency via npm or git.
