Datavisualization Backbone patterns Building apps with Backbone.js Here, I try to document the good practices that our team has learned along the way building Backbone applications. This document assumes that you already have some knowledge of Backbone.js, jQuery, and of course, JavaScript itself. Table of contents Thanks Roundabout for jQuery by Fred LeBlanc It’s ready-to-go straight out of the box, but if you want to get crazy, Roundabout is highly-customizable with an extensive API that allows for some pretty amazing results. Roundabout requires jQuery (at least version 1.2, successfully tested through version 1.7.2). It works in all major modern browsers and even some of the older, not-so-modern ones. It’s open source and released under the BSD license, meaning that it’s free to use in your personal or commercial projects. See Roundabout In Action Add-Ons Roundabout is equipped to play nicely with a couple of other plugins if they’re made available. Roundabout Shapes by Fred LeBlanc Roundabout can move in more ways than just a turntable. But That’s Not All! The list above is only a list of the plugins that have support baked in, but Roundabout will play nicely with many other plugins.

d3.js Data Visualization: Modern Approaches - Smashing Magazine Build a Contacts Manager Using Backbone.js: Part 4 In part four of this series, we saw how easy it is to add and remove models from our collection, and keep the page updated in sync with the changes. In this part, we're going to look at editing existing model data. Getting Started We'll start out by adding another simple button to the template, which will enable editing of its data: As we are adding this button to our existing template, we can also add an entirely new template that can be used to render an editable form in which the model data can be changed. The new template consists mostly of <input> elements that expose the editable data. Next we can bind some event handlers for the new buttons we've added; update the events object in the ContactView class so that it contains the following new bindings: Don't forget to add the trailing comma to the end of the existing binding! Switching a Contact Into Edit Mode Adding a New Type Updating the Model Backbone models have a setter method that can be used to set any attribute. Summary

Visualize Your Network with Fidg’tFidg’t is a desktop application that aims to let you visualize your network and its predisposition for different types of things like music and photos. Currently, the service has integrated with Flickr and, so for example, Fidg’t might show you if your network is attracted or repelled by Coldplay, or if it has a predisposition to taking photos of their weekend partying. As the service expands to support other networks (they suggest integrations with Facebook, digg,, and several others are in the works), this one could become very interesting.

Adventures in Mockjax | Ja.mesBrown JavaScript and Web Development If you are developing web applications that utilize Ajax (and most do today) and are using jQuery and/or Backbone.js, you should be building with mock Ajax JSON responses. You can view the code on Github: or the examples: Servers are slow / Rapid Iteration When developing against a local server, the ajax response will typically 100-300 milliseconds, but could even be longer. Endpoints Unavailable or Developing on an Airplane There are a number of reasons that an API endpoint could be unavailable and inevitably, it will be when you want to work on your application. Undeveloped Endpoints If you are working in a team, or even on your own project, and the server-side code isn’t completed yet, Ajax mocking would allow you to complete the front-end code before the back-end is complete. Unit Testing After rapid iteration, unit testing is probably the number one reason for mocking. Slow or Unavailable Server Simulation
