Backbone.js versus AngularJS

  1. 1. Wanted: a framework that: Allows me to build a useful object model Doesn’t require me to write explicit event handlers to update the Model from form inputs Satifies frontend developers
  2. 2. Tried this Proof of concept: Basic form for editing an object’s attributes Very limited universe explored Backbone.js with Rivets.js (because it worked!) AngularJS
  3. 3. Not married to aframework (yet)
  4. 4. Why I liked AngularJS ”Frontend friendly” Simpler code in the proof of concept Easy, natural two-way data binding Model is a plain JavaScript object Dependency injection system
  5. 5. Problems with Angular Some things just don’t work??
  6. 6. Problems with Angular Some things just don’t work?? ”Codebase appears to be fairly sprawling and not very modular.”
  7. 7. Problems with Angular Some things just don’t work?? ”Codebase appears to be fairly sprawling and not very modular.” ”Angularjs documentation is absolutely abysmal. They are truly awful. I cant say enough how terribly terribly terrible they are at explaining themselves.”
