Summary JavaScript Application Design: A Build First Approach introduces JavaScript developers to techniques that will improve the quality of their software as well as their web development workflow. You'll begin by learning how to establish build processes that are appropriate for JavaScript-driven development. Then, you'll walk through best practices for productive day-to-day development, like running tasks when your code changes, deploying applications with a single command, and monitoring the state of your application once it's in production. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications. About the Book The fate of most applications is often sealed before a single line of code has been written. How is that possible? Simply, bad design assures bad results. Good design and effective processes are the foundation on which maintainable applications are built, scaled, and improved. For JavaScript developers, this means discovering the tooling, modern libraries, and architectural patterns that enable those improvements. JavaScript Application Design: A Build First Approach introduces techniques to improve software quality and development workflow. You'll begin by learning how to establish processes designed to optimize the quality of your work. You'll execute tasks whenever your code changes, run tests on every commit, and deploy in an automated fashion. Then you'll focus on designing modular components and composing them together to build robust applications. This book assumes readers understand the basics of JavaScript. What's Inside Automated development, testing, and deployment processes JavaScript fundamentals and modularity best practices Modular, maintainable, and well-tested applications Master asynchronous flows, embrace MVC, and design a REST API About the Author Nicolas Bevacqua is a freelance developer with a focus on modular JavaScript, build processes, and sharp design.

If you want to build your site’s frontend with the single-page application (SPA) model, this hands-on book shows you how to get the job done with Backbone.js. You’ll learn how to create structured JavaScript applications, using Backbone’s own flavor of model-view-controller (MVC) architecture. Start with the basics of MVC, SPA, and Backbone, then get your hands dirty building sample applications—a simple Todo list app, a RESTful book library app, and a modular app with Backbone and RequireJS. Author Addy Osmani, an engineer for Google’s Chrome team, also demonstrates advanced uses of the framework. Learn how Backbone.js brings MVC benefits to the client-side Write code that can be easily read, structured, and extended Work with the Backbone.Marionette and Thorax extension frameworks Solve common problems you’ll encounter when using Backbone.js Organize your code into modules with AMD and RequireJS Paginate data for your Collections with the Backbone.Paginator plugin Bootstrap a new Backbone.js application with boilerplate code Use Backbone with jQuery Mobile and resolve routing problems between the two Unit-test your Backbone apps with Jasmine, QUnit, and SinonJS

If you are looking for the best practices of using Backbone.js applied to real work applications, this book is for you. You will be able to apply architectural principles to create amazing web applications easily. What You Will Learn Build web applications that scale with Backbone.js Design a powerful architecture that eliminates maintenance nightmares Use common patterns and best practices in Backbone.js web applications developments Pack your applications to be deployed to production environments Clean up your code organization to a simple and maintainable architecture Test your components and get confidence with your code Deal with common scenarios like file uploading and login issues In Detail Backbone.js is a popular library to build single page applications used by many start-ups around the world because of its flexibility, robustness and simplicity. It allows you to bring your own tools and libraries to make amazing webapps with your own rules. However, due to its flexibility it is not always easy to create scalable applications with it. By learning the best practices and project organization you will be able to create maintainable and scalable web applications with Backbone.js. With this book you will start right from organizing your Backbone.js application to learn where to put each module and how to wire them. From organizing your code in a logical and physical way, you will go on to delimit view responsibilities and work with complex layouts. Synchronizing models in a two-way binding can be difficult and with sub resources attached it can be even worse. The next chapter will explain strategies for how to deal with these models. The following chapters will help you to manage module dependencies on your projects, explore strategies to upload files to a RESTful API and store information directly in the browser for using it with Backbone.js. After testing your application, you are ready to deploy it to your production environment. The final chapter will cover different flavors of authorization. The Backbone.js library can be difficult to master, but in this book you will get the necessary skill set to create applications with it, and you will be able to use any other library you want in your stack. Style and approach This book takes a tutorial approach to help you scale your Backbone.js applications. It builds a web application using the best practices and applies architectural design principles to develop maintainable web-apps. Each chapter explains the design decisions and improves the project that is used as an example alongside the book.
