This application shows how one can combine the usage of both backbone.js on the client-side and Ruby on Rails (3.0.7) on the server-side with Pusher to create an rich interactive and collaborative application such as a todo-list manager.


The bulk of the application's front-end logic is heavily based off the backbone.js todo-list example. We've written a small library that binds Pusher and Backbone together, the code to this can be found in public/javascripts/backpusher.js. The usage of it can be seen in public/javascripts/application.js.
