This is going to be a detailed example. If you want to dive directly into the code, you can check out the Before we dive into the code, check out the working example of the code: Each of the files is heavily commented and should provide insight into what each major section of code is doing.

If you have spent any time looking at Backbone.js, like many others, you are probably amazed by how lightweight, flexible and elegant it is.
This time we set up our route with three parameter parts. Zombies! RUN! (Managing Page Transitions In Backbone Apps) One of the common issues or questions I see for Backbone.js goes something like this: “Whenever I hit the same route more than once, I end up getting seeing this call being made multiple times.
It seems to accumulate another call every time I hit the route. What’s going on?” Or “I’ve noticed that my views are still handling events after I remove them from the screen. “How do I make sure I clean things up when moving to a new page in my app?” At the heart of all of these questions is a problem that most backbone developers will run into at some point: zombies. The Plague: Event Binding The majority of the problems that people are referring to in these questions and issues are caused by the events that we bind to in our apps. We bind events to our DOM elements using the declarative `events` configuration in our views: We bind events from our models and collections so that our views can respond to changes and re-render themselves: Events are everywhere, and with good reason.
Rule #2: Double Tap. Nailing the Interactions on Pageless Apps (with Backbone.js) Addyosmani/backbone-fundamentals. Backbone Fundamentals – A Free Work-In-Progress Book For Developers Of All Levels. About a week ago, I began working on a new article about Backbone.js.
It was due to cover some concepts and insights intermediate or advanced users might appreciate, but I found myself wanting to reference topics beginners might need to know if they wanted to get the most out it. Quite a few of them. In the end, I decided it might make more sense to just write a book on Backbone instead. Something free, targeted at developers of all levels, that I could reguarly update easily and perhaps get some input on from the community (if they were up for it). I called it Backbone Fundamentals. If you'd like to check it out, you can find the work-in-progress book on GitHub :) Why write a book?
Now, there's a plethora of (great) posts about Backbone out there I could have just linked to – many of which are well written and respected, but I began to think about my own journey of learning how to use the framework. Backbone Fundamentals Backbone Fundamentals hopes to change that. Contributing What's next?
