a leak-plugging layer on top of backbone.js
a basic example can be found here: http://github.com/vistarmedia/quips-example
npm install quips
currently, quips will assume a rest resource "/session/" which responds to GET, POST and DELETE requests.
- the GET should return the email (username) and name (friendly name) for a currently logged on session.
- the POST should authenticate a user based on username/password.
- the DELETE should log out the user.
Block UI Integration
you may create a global blocking UI overlay from any view by calling block() on that view. unblocking is just as simple by calling unblock().
Sticky Sidebar Integration
any DetailView can be passed the sticky:true option to its constructor. this will make sure it stays visible during scrolling.
