Backbone Playground

Building with Gulp

Start server: gulp server

Debug build: gulp

Production build: gulp production

Debug build with LiveReload: gulp live

Or use the run-scripts for Windows / *nix run.bat respective

CoffeeScript compilation

Compilation is supported via configs/coffee_config.js which is a simple CommonJS module. There's already a Cakefile located in the project root. By default the compilation starts with cake build but it can be adjusted by modifying the Cakefile and/or configs/coffee_config.js. The compiled JS files are located together with their CoffeeScript counterparts. To change this behavior set a general --output [DIR] in Cakefile. For example coffee --compile --output OUT_DIR .

More information regarding CoffeeScript compilation can be found here.

Install CoffeeScript with npm i -g coffee-script

MarionetteJS console debugging

The Marionette.Application is located under

MarionetteJS Console


In the upcoming release 3 of MarionetteJS Backbone.Radio will replace Backbone.Wreqr. There's also a shim for version 2.1 which is included in Backbone Playground. Here's an example on how to use Backbone.Radio
