BBCloneMail: A Backbone.Marionette Reference Application
NOTE: This code is currently in an experimental state. I don't recommend using it as guidance for how to build Marionette apps at the moment. If you would like to see a better reference code base, check out the version of BBCloneMail that Foxandxss is building.
See It In Action
This is a sample application, demonstrating how to use my Backbone.Marionette plugin for Backbone.js. You can see it in action at:
Running BBCloneMail On Your Computer
BBCloneMail is a NodeJS app built on Express.js. To run it on your computer you'll want to clone this repository to your machine somewhere, and then follow these steps:
- Install the latest http://nodejs.org if you don't have it already
- Open a command prompt / terminal window in the BBCloneMail project folder
npm installto install all of the needed components
npm startto start the server
- Open http://localhost:3000 in your browser
Note that step 1 through 3 only have to be done once. After you have done that, you just need to run step 4 and 5 any time you want to see the app running on your computer.
A Work In Progress
Keep in mind that this is always a work in progress. While the source code and functionality do demonstrate all of the core features and capabilities of Backbone.Marionette, the application itself is very limited in it's functionality.
