Description

What is Backbone.js?

Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.

What is Chaplin?

Chaplin addresses Backbone’s limitations by providing a lightweight and flexible structure that features well-proven design patterns and best practices. Chaplin empowers you to quickly develop scalable single-page web applications; allowing you to focus on designing and developing the underlying functionality in your web application.

What is Espresso.js?

Espresso.js is a tiny MVC framework inspired by Backbone and React with a focus on simplicity and speed. We've aimed to bring the ideas of unidirectional data flow of Flux to a simple, Backbone-style library.
