My first backbone.js "application"

Learning how to use backbone.js has been on my wishlist for some time. I found a really splendid tutorial the other night and went through the steps. I also picked up some much needed skills on using the console to inspect my JavaScript.

At the end, I felt comfortable enough to try to extend the original demo. Here's what I added to the demo below:

  • Changed the model to show Pearl Jam songs I've seen live!!!
  • Pulling collection data from an external file
  • Displaying data in a table instead of an unordered list
  • Input fields for all three keys in the model
  • Inline editing and save function instead of an alert prompt
  • Added sortable tables using jquery.tablesorter
