A common demo application for popular JavaScript MV* frameworks


This demo was written to illustrate how a server-side JavaScript solution could be applied to the TodosMVC application.

Technologies Used In This Demo

  • Underscore.js - A utility-belt library for JavaScript without extending any of the built-in JavaScript objects.
  • Backbone.js - Gives structure to web applications by providing models with 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 API over a RESTful JSON interface.
  • jQuery - A fast, concise, library that simplifies how to traverse HTML documents, handle events, perform animations, and add AJAX.
  • node.js - Event-driven I/O server-side JavaScript environment based on V8.
  • Express - High performance, high class web development for node.js.
  • Jade - High performance template engine heavily influenced by Haml and implemented with JavaScript for node.js.
  • Stylus - Expressive, dynamic, robust CSS for node.js
  • Mongoose - A MongoDB object modeling tool designed to work in an asynchronous environment.
  • MongoDB - A scalable, high-performance, open source NoSQL database.

Running the Demo locally

  1. Install node.js.
  2. Install MongoDB.
  3. Start the MongoDB server from a terminal window:
    $ mongod
  4. Change the working directory to the project root:
    $ cd <path to todosmvc directory>/labs/architecture-examples/backbone_node_mongo/
  5. Install dependencies using the node package manger (npm).
    $ sudo npm link
  6. Start the Todos demo server from a different terminal window:
    $ node app
  7. Visit http://localhost:3000 in a web browser.

Running the demo on Stackato

  1. stackato push -n

Make sure you are pushing to a Stackato cluster that has the mongodb service enabled.
