Backbone.Marionette TodoMVC app

Backbone.Marionette is a composite application library for Backbone.js that aims to simplify the construction of large scale JavaScript applications. It is a collection of common design and implementation patterns found in the applications that I (Derick Bailey) have been building with Backbone, and includes various pieces inspired by composite application architectures, such as Microsoft's "Prism" framework.

Key Benefits

  • Scale applications out with modular, event driven architecture
  • Sensible defaults, such as using Underscore templates for view rendering
  • Easy to modify to make it work with your applicaton's specific needs
  • Reduce boilerplate for views, with specialized view types
  • Build on a modular architecture with an Application and modules that attach to it
  • Compose your application's visuals at runtime, with Region and Layout
  • Nested views and layouts within visual regions
  • Built-in memory management and zombie killing in views, regions and layouts
  • Built-in event clean up with the EventBinder
  • Event-driven architecture with the EventAggregator
  • Flexible, "as-needed" architecture allowing you to pick and choose what you need
  • And much, much more

This implementation of the application uses Marionette's module system. Variations using RequireJS and a more classic approach to JavaScript modules are also available here.
