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 Marionette?

Marionette brings an application architecture to Backbone, along with built in view management and memory management. Backbone.Marionette is a composite application library for Backbone.js that aims to simplify the construction of large scale JavaScript applications. It is a collection of common design and implementation patterns found in applications.

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.
