A List/Detail Template for Open Web Apps (beta)

Warning: the contents in this tempate are deprected, and will soon be replaced by a much different structure. Volo and several other things will be removed to offer a simpler and more extensible template.

This template comes with a new layouts library that lets you create apps quickly, and initial HTML and javascript that defines a list/detail application.

It is part of the mortar template collection for building Open Web Apps.

The layouts library is called mortar-layouts, and you can read more about it in the project page. It uses backbone.js to provide a powerful yet minimal application UI framework.

Check out what the template is by default.


There are a few ways to get this template:

  • git clone git://github.com/mozilla/mortar-list-detail.git myapp
  • volo create myapp mozilla/mortar-list-detail

If you have node installed, you can run a development server with volo:

  • cd myapp
  • volo serve

View the list/detail app at http://localhost:8008/.


You'll probably want to change how this template works to build your app. The meat of this template is in the mortar-layouts library, which this uses to construct a UI powered by backbone.js. You should read the documentation in the mortar-layouts project.
