Who This Book Is For
What You Will Learn
Install and understand the core concepts of Backbone Marionette
Orchestrate views with a controller object
Divide your application into logical independent regions
Manage an object's life cycle to avoid memory leaks
Provide structure, organization, and pattern to your Backbone code
This guide will help you learn some key concepts that will allow you to build large-scale applications with ease. You will learn how to add new features quickly and easily using a solid and composite Backbone Marionette framework. This book is a practical guide to developing scalable applications using an incremental and modular approach with Marionette.js.
This book begins by showing you the key benefits of Marionette.js and how to set up a development environment so you can begin writing code using this framework. It then walks you through the main components of the library such as the router, controller, and application. After that, it introduces you to topics like view types and the view life cycle before moving on to more advanced topics such as modularization, enterprise messaging patterns, incremental use, and memory management.
Getting Started with Backbone Marionette contains a lot of infrastructural examples that will help you to build an application of virtually any module size. It provides you with a collection of common design and implementation patterns to break your applications into small pieces. It then wraps-up by implementing extended capabilities like asynchronous module definitions and handlebars.
