What makes Backbone.js development so popular and effective? Its high-performance, feature-packed applications involve simple feature set, easy integration, and large community to become so. In addition, Backbone’s small footprint and easy extensibility made it the right choice for enterprise level customers.

Backbone focuses on giving developers helpful methods for querying and manipulating your data rather than re-inventing the JavaScript object model. It is a library, rather than a framework, that plays well with others and scales well, from embedded widgets to large-scale applications. Backbone.js gives structure to web applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing API over a RESTful JSON interface. It also works perfectly with other frameworks and libraries (for instance, AngularJS, TypeScript etc.)

However, the most important part is that Appnovation’s Backbone.js experts to build the right solution quickly and easily for your unique business needs.

Advantages of Backbone.js

  • Event-driven communication. It's easy to create small and slick web applications with frameworks like jQuery. When a project grows, however, the jQuery declarations and callbacks get more and more complex and are distributed all over the place. The code becomes more and more cluttered and hard to read. Backbone.js alleviates this by providing an event-driven communication between views and models (and other elements which we ignore for now for the sake of simplicity). You can attach event listeners to any attribute of a model, which gives you very nuanced control over what you change in the view. The backbone.js events build on top of regular DOM events, which makes the mechanism very versatile and extensible. With one line of code, for example, you can introduce a publish/subscribe pattern to backbone that ties all of your views together (this is described in full detail in an excellent blogpost by Derick Bailey: http://lostechies.com/derickbail...)
  • Syncing with a back-end. The models in Backbone.js can be easily tied to a back-end. Out-of-the box the framework provides excellent support for RESTful APIs in that models can map to a RESTful endpoint. If the API is designed correctly, backbone is already configured to access these directly for read, write, and delete operations (via GET, POST, and DELETE). If a backend other than a RESTful API is used, backbone.js is still flexible enough to accommodate for that.
  • Maintainability by following conventions. Conventions are a great way to introduce a common coding style without the need of coming up with an extensive set of coding standards. At Visual.ly we found backbone.js to be particularly helpful to maintain a clean code base despite having multiple people collaborating on the code. The secret sauce here is laziness. The more you stick to (the few) backbone conventions the less you have to code, and in turn the more standardized and readable the code becomes.
