Welcome to backbone.js, just as a name it’s the most important javascript library for you to develop applications.

What is Backbone.js?

Backbone.js is a lightweight javascript library that allows to develop and structure the client side applications that run in a web browser.

Backbone.js is a library framework created by Jeremy Ashkenas.

It provides client-side application structure, it's kind of MVC(Master-view-controller)framework which focuses on the separation of concerns.Backbone.js also makes use of routers which is helpful in creating single-page applications

Following are the features of Backbone

·        Backbone provides different types of building blocks like models, views, events, routers.

·        Backbone makes your code simple and organized.

·        Backbone allows developers to create client-side web applications.

·        Backbone is open-source which contains a free library.

·        Backbone.js allows developers to create client-side web applications.

·        Backbone is open-source which contains a free library.

·        Backbone allows developers to create client-side web applications or mobile applications in an organized format.

Why do you need Backbone.js?

To build something without structure is never a good idea. Backbone has a layer set of the library that helps you to give a great structure to your application.Backbone.js gives structure to the web application by providing models with key-value building and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views. it's well documented and store data in models

 What is the use of Backbone.js?

Backbone.js is something that almost every developer will come to experience, programming is a matter of abstraction. The better the code the better the abstraction.worked with javascript for a while and have a good previous programming expression and you prioritize a good design and architecture you will surely gonna use backbone.

 Installation of Backbone.js

Models in Backbone.js

Models are the heart of any JavaScript application. The authors of backbone.js have quite a clear definition of what they believe the model represents in backbone.js

Creating a model


. var UserModel = Backbone.Model.extend({

urlRoot: '/user',

defaults: {

name: '',

email: ''



var user = new UserModel();

// Notice that we haven't set an `id`

var userDetails = {

name: 'Bhawna',

email: ''


// POST /user with a payload of {name:Bhawna, email: ''}

// The server will save the data and return a response containing the new `id`, {

success: function (user) {



 )} [/code]

Table should now have the values

1, 'Bhawna', ''

Retrieve a model

Now that we have saved a new user model, we can now retrieve it from the server, we can clearly see the id is 1 in the above example.


Backbone.js collection

A collection is an ordered set of models .it handles the loading and saving of new models to the Backbone.js you can create your own collections with the help of the backbone’s collection class. 


Extends the backbone’s collection class to create your own collection



Initialize to define functions to create a model class


An array of models created inside the collection


Used to add model or array of models into the collection


Specifies the state of the model and uses the backbone.sync


Return the copy of the attribute of the model


Remove model and array from the collection


Take the array of models and push the models to the collection


Used to retrieve the model from a collection by using id


Used to update the collections with a set of items in a model.


Creates a new instance in the model of the collection.


Take the array of models and remove the models from the collections


Used to display the model by using a matching attribute in the collection.


Uses the sync method to extract data from the model in the collection.

So, with backbone.js you are free to define your events with it is designed as such that you can mix it with any javascript object.

In nutshell, we can describe Backbone as the following

·       For its best JavaScript structure

·       Use of models

·       Very simple to use

·       Flexible

·       Fast to pick up

·       Open source

·       Easy API
