backbone.jsHow can I use Backbone.js to create examples?

Backbone.js is a JavaScript library that provides structure to web applications. It can be used to create examples by creating a Model, View, and Collection.

A Model is a representation of a single data object. It can be used to create an example of a data object like a User:

var User = Backbone.Model.extend({
  defaults: {
    name: '',
    email: ''

var user = new User({
  name: 'John Doe',
  email: '[email protected]'

// Output: {name: "John Doe", email: "[email protected]"}

A View is a representation of a UI element like a button. It can be used to create an example of a button:

var ButtonView = Backbone.View.extend({
  tagName: 'button',
  className: 'btn btn-primary',
  events: {
    'click': 'handleClick'
  render: function() {
    this.$el.html('Click Me');
    return this;
  handleClick: function(e) {
    alert('You clicked me!');

var buttonView = new ButtonView();

A Collection is a representation of a group of data objects. It can be used to create an example of a list of users:

var Users = Backbone.Collection.extend({
  model: User

var users = new Users([
  {name: 'John Doe', email: '[email protected]'},
  {name: 'Jane Doe', email: '[email protected]'}

// Output: [{name: "John Doe", email: "[email protected]"}, {name: "Jane Doe", email: "[email protected]"}]

These are the basic building blocks for creating examples with Backbone.js. For more information on how to use Backbone.js to create examples, please refer to the Backbone.js documentation.
