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!
Extra Special Thanks to: Paul Guinan for giving me usage rights to his fantastic Boilerplate character.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org:tbranyen/backbone-boilerplate.git .

To use the new and improved build process, please visit the
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.
