A demo app for bbstarter

The application demonstrates simple CRUD operations on items. The items are fetched from nodejs-express server which returns the results from mongodb in json format. A more or less REST based implementation.

To start the app

npm install
node web.js

Then visit http://localhost:3000


Note: I just started working on backbone, there might be lot which can be generalized and made better. Feel free to send pull requests!
