Gaslight Software Blog, Backbone.js Views Done the Right Way As soon as you build an interesting application in backbone, one of the challenges you are likely to encounter is wanting to have composite views, or views that are contained within a larger view. I’ve solved this problem several ways in different projects and I thought it would be fun to walk through the progression and how I’ve arrived at what I currently see as a preferred solution. Let’s start by talking about what might seem to be the most obvious solution and why it doesn’t actually work. We’ll use as an example a view that displays a collection of people. Let’s assume we’d like to have a view for the table and within it, views for each row. You might end up with a TableView like so:
