Underscore is a JavaScript library that provides a whole mess of useful functional programming helpers without extending any built-in objects. It’s the answer to the question: “If I sit down in front of a blank HTML page, and want to start being productive immediately, what do I need?” … and the tie to go along with jQuery's tux and Backbone's suspenders. Underscore provides 80-odd functions that support both the usual functional suspects: map, select, invoke — as well as more specialized helpers: function binding, javascript templating, deep equality testing, and so on. It delegates to built-in functions, if present, so modern browsers will use the native implementations of forEach, map, reduce, filter, every, some and indexOf. The project is hosted on GitHub.

Plugin development has evolved over the past few years.

Object-Based JavaScript in ES6 At first I was pretty happy, that there will be a class syntax in ECMAScript 6. Then I listened to the latest revision of “Working Draft” (German podcast) about Node and JavaScript and afterwards watched Eric Elliott’s talk “Classical Inheritance is obsolet” for a second time.

Many companies use D3.js for visualization in a BigData workflow. Here are some I heard of in the Silicon Valley. I will try to present them in an unbiased way, but feel free to get the facts straight. Introducing Backbone.Radio Marionette comes bundled with a library called Backbone.Wreqr, and in the coming months we will replace it with a new library by the name of Backbone.Radio. Radio is heavily inspired by Wreqr, but it was rewritten from the ground up. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re unacquainted with Wreqr. In fact, I would wager it’s one of the lesser-used pieces of Marionette. I blame this on the fact that it lives in a separate repository and is only mentioned in the Marionette documentation in passing (shameless plug: brand new Marionette docs are on the way!).
