Sup internet,

I decided I didn’t have enough JavaScript MVC frameworks in my life, so I played around with Backbone for the first time.

I went through and made a slight modification to the tutorial here

The only real difference comes from the jQuery that instantiates the html for the list elements.

I did not like the one huge line rendering multiple HTML elements (ew!), so I separated the function that renders the HTML from the backbone function that renders the element (sort of).

You can check out my code here

Considering that this was my first time ever playing with backbone, this might be dumb, but I thought it was nicer from a semantic and readability context.

A group member’s love of the Python PEP8 styling guide has really made me start thinking a lot more about code style (and how JS style can kind of suck sometimes).

Thanks internet (have fun today!),
