You can link the collection with an existent model

Or may be you want to create both, model and collection on one step

$ yo backbone-amd:collection collection-name model-name --create-model

Create views

Backbone works with view definitions, to create one use this command

$ yo backbone-amd:view view-name

$ yo backbone-amd:view view-name --coffee

Create routers

You can generate routers too with

$ yo backbone-amd:router router-name

Or with coffee option

$ yo backbone-amd:router router-name --coffee


Default test framework for this generator is buster.js but you cant specify another like mocha

$ yo backbone-amd --test-framework=mocha

But if you work with buster you have to do a couple of things first. Due buster framework issues you have to install node 0.9.9, at this time don't work with node 0.10.0 and ensure to install globally buster and plantomjs:

$ npm install -g buster phantomjs
