connect-backbone-router

Creates routes for interacting with Backbone from Connect/Express

Usage

var Backbone = require("Backbone"),
connect = require("connect"),
color = require("colors"),
connect_backbone_router = require("./../"),
request = require("request");
 
var app = connect();
 
var collections = {
hitchhikers: new Backbone.Collection([
new Backbone.Model({
id: 0,
name: "Zaphod"
})
])
};
 
app.use(connect.logger());
app.use(connect.bodyParser());
 
app.use(connect_backbone_router({
debug: true,
path: "/data",
collections: collections
}));
 
app.use(function(req,res,next) {
res.end("That's all folks!");
});
 
var server = app.listen(8080);

Now you should be able to get the whole collection at http://localhost:8080/data/hitchhikers

The single model at http://localhost:8080/data/hitchhikers/0

Or an attribute at http://localhost:8080/data/hitchhikers/0/name
