Difference from Chaplin Boilerplate

Chaplin Boilerplate is a official boilerplate all for chaplin. This skeleton is almost the same, except a few changes:

  • Added Header.
  • CommonJS is used instead of AMD, because it's easier to use & debug.

Features

  • HTML5Boilerplate html & css are included.
  • CoffeeScript + Stylus + Handlebars as app languages (you can change this to anything you want)
  • Backbone as main MVC/MVP library, Chaplin as meta-framework.
  • Support of IE8 and up.
  • Cross-module communication using the Mediator and Publish/Subscribe patterns
  • Controllers for managing individual UI views
  • Rails-style routes which map URLs to controller actions
  • An application view as dispatcher and view manager
  • Extended model, view and collection classes to avoid repetition and enforce conventions
  • Strict memory management and object disposal
  • A collection with additional manipulation methods for smarter change events
  • A collection view for easy and intelligent list rendering

Authentication
