    Exoskeleton

    Exoskeleton is a faster and leaner Backbone for your HTML5 apps.

    http://exosjs.com

    What already works

    All features you need for real-world app are working. All software tests are passing: (libs = underscore and jquery)

    • Backbone: with and without libs
    • Chaplin: with and without libs

    Marionette and other popular plugins: WIP.

    Building

    Default and custom builds:

    make # Will create exoskeleton.js
    make noutils # If you want to use Underscore and jQuery
                 # and don't want to include `Exoskeleton.utils`.
    make min     # Minified version.
    # Custom, like this:
    cat lib/{header,events,collection,sync,history,footer}.js > exoskeleton.js
    

    Features

    • Custom builds
    • No hard dependencies on underscore or jquery
    • Support for Bower and Component(1)
    • AMD support
    • Speed: blazing fast when used without jQuery.

    Also:

    Differences

    • When jQuery is not used, you must use event.delegateTarget instead of event.currentTarget for event delegation. This is because currentTarget is not overridable on native non-jQuery events.

    • Declaratively defined view events which point to non-existing handler functions are no longer tolerated / skipped. Early error is thrown instead.

    • In no-underscore environment, there are no underscore-inspired Collection methods (each, pluck etc.), but there are ES5-inspired methods:

      forEach, map, filter, some, every, reduce, reduceRight, indexOf, lastIndexOf

      Also, no underscore-inspired Model methods at all.

    • emulateHTTP and emulateJSON were removed
