Marionette Configuration

Marionette has a few globally configurable settings that will change how the system works. While many of these subjects are covered in other docs, this configuration doc should provide a list of the most common items to change.

Documentation Index


Marionette makes use of jQuery, by default, to manipulate DOM elements. To get a reference to jQuery, though, it assigns the Marionette.$ attribute to Backbone.$. This provides consistency with Backbone in which exact version of jQuery or other DOM manipulation library is used.

If you wish to change to a specific version of a DOM manipulation library, you can directly assign these settings:

Backbone.$ = myDOMLib;
Marionette.$ = myDOMLib;

Note that you should change both Backbone and Marionette at the same time, to the same DOM manipulation library.
