Mobile Pack for Backbone.js
The Mobile Pack for Backbone.js supports two deployment options for your HTML5 mobile app.
- To use the Mobile Pack with a Visualforce page (i.e. host the app on Force.com), follow this quick start.
- To deploy your HTML5 app externally (e.g. on Heroku) and source data from Salesforce, follow this quick start.
What’s included in this Mobile Pack
force.entity.js- a plugin library that enables Force.com connectivity for Backbone's Model and Collection types.
Samples/BackboneVFJQueryMobile- a Visualforce page and supporting static resources that implements the single page contact management app.
