Building Mobile JavaScript WebApps With Backbone.js & jQuery: Part I

August 10, 2011

Welcome to Part 1 of a two-part tutorial on building complete mobile web applications in JavaScript using DocumentCloud's Backbone.js, jQuery Mobile and LABjs.

In Part 1, I'll be covering a complete run-down of Backbone 0.5.2's models, views, collections and routers but also taking you through options for correctly namespacing your Backbone application. I'll also give you some tips including what scaffolding tool that can save time setting up your initial application, the ideal number of routers to use and more.

We'll then build a testable wireframe of our application in jQuery Mobile before we complete building it in Part 2.
