I have been having a lot of fun with Backbone.js and CoffeeScript lately. It is my new programming obsession. They go together like chocolate and coffee. Along with this work, I have had the fantasy of going server-less and pushing all of my data stores to a back-end that I don’t have to code or manage myself. I mean, how cool would that be? To develop a browser-based application complete with data storage without a server is boss if you ask me.
This series will be broken into several parts:
- Introduction (this page)
- A Proxy Server for Parse.com
- Making Backbone.js Work with Parse.com
- Working with Backbone.js and the Parse.com Proxy
- Building an Application with Parse.com Models
- Hosting the Todos example on Heroku (Bonus)
Disclaimer: I am really just hacking and documenting my work. I have no idea how this will perform in a real-world scenario. It is a thought experiment. If anything, this is really just a place for me to document my work.
