This is based on railscast 325:

I have gone on to replace the eco templates with handlebars templates by using the handlebars_assets gem.

I have then implemented the technique for sharing templates between the server and the client presented in railscasts 295.

I adapted the code used in that railscast to make it work with handlebars instead of moustach by borrowing code from this gem:

Browsing to “/server_rendering” will now display html generated on the server side from ALMOST the same handlebar template as the client would use.

At this point I face a problem: I cannot figure out how to implement the method used by backbone of recursing through each item in the collection and applying a template to it. Any ideas on how to do this so I can use EXACTLY the same template on both the server and client would be much appreciated.

Requires Ruby 1.9.2 or later to run.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
