.ruby-gemset moving away from Rails 3.0
Rakefile moving away from Rails 3.0
backbonejs-rails.gemspec update gemspec and bump to version 1.0.0

Backbone.js 1.0.0 Underscore.js 1.5.0


Add the following to your Gemfile:

gem "backbonejs-rails", "~> 1.0.1"

Then use Bundler to install:

$ bundle install


$ rails g backbonejs:install

Optionally you can add -ich to the end of that command to have icanhaz.js included.

What Does it do?

backbonejs-rails adds the necessary libraries to your Rails app for using Backbone.js.

  • backbone.js
  • underscore.js
  • json2.js

For templates you can optionally include ICanHaz.js

$ rails g backbonejs:install -ich
