Backbone-AMD using RequireJS Boilerplate [GitHub]

Everyone knows how big of a headache it is to write heavy JS applications – even in BackboneJS. The codebase tends to span across thousands of lines, with no modularityĀ whatsoever.

Backbone-AMD is the solution. But bootstrapping a Backbone-AMD compliant app is no easy task … until now : )

I just released an open source Backbone-AMD Boilerplate – feel free to fork, pull, suggest, … and share !

Bootstrap 3 : An early overview (and download link).

A release candidate of Bootstrap 3 was previewedĀ earlier today. The last major release dates back to Jan 28th 2012 … more than a year ago.

Personally, one thing struck me : the flat design. But in a very positive way, mainly because of two things :

  1. I love super-minimalistic UIs.
  2. I can’t stand prototyping my apps with a TwitteresqueĀ design (I have a Bootstrap flat fork for that).

The bad news (at least for me) is the flat design is only temporary.

The other bad news, except the default responsivenessĀ (responsive styles are now included in the main stylesheets – navbar example), I can’t see any major change in Bootstrap 3. At least for the time being !

If you want to get while hot, and can’t stand the teaser download link, here’s a direct link via the Bootstrap 3 GitHub working branch.
