backbone.jsHow can I set a model in Backbone.js?

Setting a model in Backbone.js is a simple process. To begin, you must first create a model object. This is done by extending the Backbone.Model class. For example:

var MyModel = Backbone.Model.extend({
    defaults: {
        name: '',
        age: 0

Once you have a model object, you can create an instance of the model by using the new keyword. The following example creates a new instance of the MyModel object:

var myModel = new MyModel();

You can then set attributes on the model instance using the set method. This takes an object containing the attributes and their values. The following example sets the name and age attributes on the myModel instance:

    name: 'John Doe',
    age: 20

Finally, you can retrieve the attributes from the model instance using the get method. This takes the name of the attribute you want to retrieve. The following example retrieves the name attribute from the myModel instance:

var name = myModel.get('name');
// Output: 'John Doe'

The set and get methods are the primary way to interact with a Backbone.js model.
