Why use Jackbone?

Developing Backbone + JQuery Mobile javascript applications is possible, but it's a pain. Jackbone is here to make it as easy as it should.


Jackbone is a utility library that aims to structure the development of rich HTML5 applications using JQuery Mobile, by extending the Backbone framework. It heavily relies on Backbone, offering specialized classes for your views and router. Additionaly, it defines a controller interface, provide a view manager that handles life and death of the Views and Controllers of your application.
