Backbone And Marionette : Take Over The World
Submitted by Neha Singhal (@nehasinghal) on Wednesday, 29 July 2015
To showcase how my team and I at Adobe used the power of Backbone and Marionette to turbocharge our web app. I will be building a full single page application. Participants will come away having learnt powerful Backbone features and hopefully a clear understanding of building Single Page Applications.
We start with how Backbone helped us out initially for the first version of our application at Adobe and why its such a great framework to use. Then we move on to how Marionette filled in the missing links and essentially turbocharged our application.
I will demonstrate features such as completely reusable components, messaging channels and plug and play views. I will also be building a full Single Page application demonstrating these.
I will also introduce you to Backbone.Radio, a feature that will be included along with the next version of Backbone. We’ll see how we can start using one of Marionette’s most powerful future additions today. We will also see a way to make it much better.
I’m also going to introduce you to one of our internal projects - the Cacheable Radio. Its an addon to the Backbone.Radio messaging channel that substantially increases the performance of Backbone Radio through browser caching. We’ll show how we use both Backbone Radio and Cacheable Radio in production and how you can too.
