    Backbone-Super

    This Backbone.js plugin provides a convenient super method.

    Usually, when you're using Backbone.js, you have to do some funky (well, not funky... Javascript-y) stuff to be able to access parent methods.

    From the Backbone.js documentation:

    Brief aside on super: JavaScript does not provide a simple way to call super — the function of the same name defined higher on the prototype chain. If you override a core function like set, or save, and you want to invoke the parent object's implementation, you'll have to explicitly call it, along these lines:

    var Note = Backbone.Model.extend({ set: function(attributes, options) { Backbone.Model.prototype.set.call(this, attributes, options); ... } });

    
    After including this plugin, you can do the same thing with the following syntax:
    
    ```javascript
    var Note = Backbone.Model.extend({
        set: function(attributes, options) {
            this._super(attributes, options);
            ...
        }
    });
    

    To use it, simply include it after you include Backbone.js:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="backbone.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="backbone-super.js"></script>
