Boilerplate

Backbone Boilerplate

This boilerplate is the product of much research and frustration. Existing boilerplates freely modify Backbone core, lack a build process, and are very prescriptive; Backbone Boilerplate changes that.

Organize your application with a logical file structure, develop your Models/Collections/Views/Routers inside modules, and build knowing you have efficient code that will not bottleneck your users.

Thanks to our Contributors!

Special Thanks to: cowboy, iros, nimbupani, wookiehangover, and jugglinmike for helping me create this project.

Extra Special Thanks to: Paul Guinan for giving me usage rights to his fantastic Boilerplate character.

Getting started

The easiest way to get started is to install Git and clone the repository:

# Create a new project directory and enter it.
mkdir myproject && cd myproject

# Using Git, fetch only the last few commits.  You don't need the full history
# for your project.
git clone --q --depth 0 git@github.com:tbranyen/backbone-boilerplate.git .

Build process

To use the new and improved build process, please visit the grunt-bbb plugin repo and follow the instructions to install. Basing your project off this repo will allow the bbb commands to work out-of-the-box.
