Definition - What does Backbone.js mean?
Techopedia explains Backbone.js
The core of Backbone.js includes four major classes:
- Collection: Collections in Backbone.js are basically an array of models. Collections are usually a query result in which the results include a number of models.
- View: A view in Backbone.js listens to the events thrown by the Document Object Model and collections/models. In addition, it represents the state and data model of the application to the user.
- Controller: Controllers in Backbone can be used to create stateful, bookmarkable applications with the help of hashbangs.
Some applications that use Backbone.js include:
