Detect and apply changes on Backbone.js models

Backbone-delta Build Status

A couple of extra methods for Backbone.js, related to changing models and collections.

  • Backbone.Model#reset resets attributes of the model, also unsetting attributes that no longer exist, and triggers a single set event.

  • Backbone.Collection#delta resets a collection, and triggers several add, remove, and change events, but falls back to a normal reset when the contents has changed completely.
