nateps update todos example removing use of refList & using a component
refList is no longer needed, as Derby's bindings are now sufficiently complete and square brackets in templates can acheive a similar effect while being much far more versatile. use of refList should likely be discouraged.

In addition, this updates the todos example to follow more idiomatic derby coding practices, putting the controller code in a component

Derby

The Derby MVC framework makes it easy to write realtime, collaborative applications that run in both Node.js and browsers.

See https://derbyjs.com/

Examples

Directory

https://directory.derbyjs.com/

Example of a typical application with a few routes. This is the best example to use as a starting point for writing an application in DerbyJS.

Hello

https://hello.derbyjs.com/

Minimal "Hello, world" example.

Chat

https://chat.derbyjs.com/lobby

A simple chat demo. Note that as you edit your name, it updates in realtime. Name changes also show up in the page title and other rooms. Check out the source in the examples directory to see how these bindings are created automatically.

Todos

https://todos.derbyjs.com/derby

The requisite MVC demo, but collaborative and realtime! Todo items are contenteditable fields with support for bold and italics.

Sink

https://sink.derbyjs.com/

A kitchen-sink style example with a bunch of random features. Largely used for testing.

Installing

To run these examples on your own machine, first install Node.js. You'll also need MongoDB installed and running.

Then, clone this repo from GitHub.

You can run each of the examples from their own directories:

$ cd ~/derby-examples/directory
$ node server.js

The examples written in CoffeeScript are meant to be run via the coffee command:

$ npm install -g coffeescript
$ cd ~/derby-examples/sink
$ coffee server.coffee

If you would like to run all of the examples at once you can do

cd ~/derby-examples
node server.js

If you run into an EMFILE error on Mac or Linux you can up your file limit with ulimit -n 2560
