Experimental

This is an experimental, full stack, single-page starter app I'm trying to develop using:

  • Front-end

    • Backbone.js
    • Underscore.js
    • jquery
    • Twitter Bootstrap
    • fontawesome
    • Google Fonts
  • Back-end

    • Python (Flask Framework)
    • SQL Alchemy

This is freely licensed under MIT and you are free to share and use. Helpful contributions will be welcome, of course!

Running the app

Just download or git clone this repository and directly start serving with an http file server such as python's http.server module or PHP's built-in server (PHP -S <end-point>):

$ git clone git@github.com:prahladyeri/experimental-backbone.git .
$ python -m http.server
$ Serving HTTP on 0.0.0.0 port 8000 ...
...

In order to simulate delays that usually happen in a live environment, you can also use the http-live-simulator tool I've written. This tool adds a 300-500 milliseconds delay to each requested resource to simulate a live hosted environment. This is very important for javascript applications as these delays cause a significant funcitional impact on event loop based asyncronous programming model.
