Powder | A Backbone-powered iPad webapp
Track snow conditions at your favorite ski resorts
Powder is an experiment using backbone.js to power an iPad webapp. On the client, Powder uses the browser's native HTML5 localStorage mechanism to save the users's preferences, the list of resorts the user chooses to track. On the server, Powder uses Sinatra to fetch and parse various snow/ski reports from http://onthesnow.com/ then serve it up as JSON to the browser.
- Sinatra for feed parsing
- Sprockets for asset packaging
- SCSS because it's better than CSS
- Backbone for client-side structure
- Eco for Backbone templating
- Redis for server-side caching
- localStorage for client-side persistence
$ git clone email@example.com:imulus/powder.git && cd powder
$ bundle install
Fire it up
Powder gets all resort data from the http://onthesnow.com/ RSS feed. Many thanks.
