Jschat is web application for online support via Jabber

Originally application was written with JavascriptMVC framework. But lated I decided to rewrite it on lighter Backbone.js

So the requirements are:

  • jQuery as workhorse
  • Underscore.js as requirement for backbone and a nice "tie to go along with jQuery's tux".
  • Backbone.js as MVC framework
  • Strophe.js as XMPP layer library (*)
  • Fleshed for browsers, that doen't support CORS to initiate cross-domain connection via Flash
  • Handlebars.js as javascript tempalte engine (**)

* - You will need also BOSH connection manager, like a punjab as bridge to XMPP server .

** - Maybe it is better to use Mustache?
