Maybe I'm missing it, but there is no module loading support in backbone.js, is that correct?
I used both in this sample project.
I hope you find it useful!
That's correct -- there is no module loading support. I don't think that the to-RequireJS-or-not-to-RequireJS has anything to do with Backbone, really.
Agree that module loading isn't relevant to Backbone, but I did want to clarify: RequireJS lets you specify dependencies in your development code, and then create combined, minified, and optimized files for production using its optimization tool. For browser-based JS, its goal isn't so much to let you do module loading in production as it is to let you develop small units of functionality, express dependencies between them, and know that you can generate optimized code when you're done.
Thank Rebecca, I hadn't had the time to reply. Those are basically my thoughts on the subject.
I was only asking before if there was a module system that people were using that was either a part of it or typically used by others. I'm using RequireJS everywhere, including on the backend.
I worked with James to flush out some bugs I was having, my app uses a lot of other Frameworks/Projects and it now works perfectly with modules built to work in both environments. So far it is mostly form validation and Object/Storage Serialization/Deserialization that is being used. It has been very helpful.
