Backbone Dropbox Datastore API adapter

Backbone Dropbox Datastore Adapter v0.0.2

Quite simply a Dropbox Datastore adapter for Backbone. It's a drop-in replacement for Backbone.Sync() to handle saving to a Dropbox Datastore.

Include Backbone.dropboxDatastore after having included Backbone.js:

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

Create your collections like so:

window.SomeCollection = Backbone.Collection.extend({
 
  dropboxDatastore: new Backbone.DropboxDatastore("SomeCollection"), // Unique name within your app. 
 
  // ... everything else is normal. 
 
});

Include RequireJS:

<script type="text/javascript" src="lib/require.js"></script>

RequireJS config:

require.config({
    paths: {
        jquery: "lib/jquery",
        underscore: "lib/underscore",
        backbone: "lib/backbone",
        dropboxdatastore: "lib/backbone.dropboxDatastore"
    }
});

Define your collection as a module:

define("someCollection", ["dropboxdatastore"], function() {
    var SomeCollection = Backbone.Collection.extend({
        dropboxDatastore: new Backbone.DropboxDatastore("SomeCollection") // Unique name within your app. 
    });
 
    return new SomeCollection();
});

Require your collection:

require(["someCollection"], function(someCollection) {
  // ready to use someCollection 
});

If you're using browserify.

Backbone.DropboxDatastore = require("backbone.dropboxdatastore");

You'll need node and to npm install before being able to run the minification script.

Also to install dependencies for tests you need to npm install -g bower and then bower install.

  1. Fork;
  2. Write code, with tests;
  3. Run tests with npm test
  4. Create a pull request.

Have fun!
