Building a Text-Based UI with Backbone and Charm. I am a little framework averse. When I write a program, I like to build from scratch as far as it is practical. Not using a framework gives me the feeling that I am so in control of my own destiny. But having said that, I will sometimes succumb to using a framework when it's very clear that the use of the framework will result in significantly less code, and/orsignificantly less complexity I recently rewrote a text-based user interface using Backbone, and as far as I know, that is a framework.
Combined with NodeJS you are empowered by a very fast platform to develop server-side applications. Of course, you want to test these apps as well. Vows is really great way to do this. Unfortunately it's not straight forward (yet) to set up NodeJS + CoffeeScript + Vows. ~ First off, make sure you have CoffeeScript and Vows installed. Npm install -g coffee-script npm install -g vows Next up, in your product directory, create a directory named test. I'm not going to explain the intimate details of Vows here, suffice it to say that you calculate a value and store it in topic.
