Example of using require.js with backbone.js


Template project for backbone with require.js:

This project demonstrates how to use require.js with backbone.js and then replace require.js with almond.js in production.

See the file in public/js to see how the project is built. Note that the included require.js is currently an edge version.

To build the javascript files you can do:

node public/js/

However I'm lazy and like to type less so there's also a rake task:

rake build


This project comes with a basic sinatra app for serving assets. If you have ruby and bundler installed just do:
bundle install

To run the project

ruby app.rb

Then visit the following 3 urls: localhost:4567 localhost:4567/dev localhost:4567/jquery <– this file demonstrates how currently require.js will prefer the jquery loaded in the page to the one explicitly defined in the project.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
