Bassloader

Pronounced "Base Loader."

Loads "pages" that get loaded and unloaded based on route changes. This is actually just a backbone view whose element should be set to the content area that pages should be set to.

Registers a page. When any of the routes listed in the routes array of the page_object are triggered, this page will be loaded. See the Page Object section below for more details.

Example:

// Create the loader
var loader = new Bassloader({
	el: document.getElementById("content")
});

// Define a page
var HomeView = Backbone.View.extend({});
var page = {
	"routes": ["","/","home"],
	"view": HomeView
};

// Register the page
loader.page("home", page);

Registers multiple pages at a time. Same as above, but using a map, allowing for more than one page to be registered at once:

// Create the loader
var loader = new Bassloader({ el: document.getElementById("content")});

// Define the pages
var pages = {
	
	"home": {
		"routes": ["","/","home"],
		"view": HomeView
	},
	
	"contact": {
		"routes": ["contact","contact/:method"],
		"view": ContactView
	}
	
};

// Register the pages
loader.page(pages);

Retrieves the page object with the page_key identifier.

{
	"routes": ["/route1/:param1", "/alternate_route/:param1"],
	"view": Backbone.View,
	"paramList": ["p1"]
}
