Great tool! Saves a lot of time with backbone apps!!

do you really find backbone helps you? I've looked into that quite a bit, and honestly tried to learn it but it seems like it adds a lot of unnecessary bloat, albeit DOES seem nice... i just cant convince myself that the benefits actually outweigh the massive setup unless im building something as complex as ... i dont know, like amazon or something. Even pineapple i cant imagine using it.. id love to be convinced otherwise.

I'm not quite sure yet :) I really like having the snappy UX it provides. I really dislike the 'boilerplate' you need to type to get everything working... and brunch almost helps with that.

I have some friends that use it heavily at Airbnb and they really like the flexibility it allows. Their entire mobile website is running on backbone and also their wish lists section is built with backbone.

I really want to try and build a non trivial app with it soon... shooting for next month-ish!

pt2, although in the long run i'm really betting on meteor for hacking an app together and something like derby for more complex apps. I can really see Meteor being a rails killer for most projects once they get a multi page setup working. So much less code than backbone.... but then you have to have the whole meteor ecosystem.

Excellent answer, yeah... I haven't used meteor ever. I saw a railscast about it. I suppose I just need to force myself to give it a shot.

When you get your non-trivial app running with it make sure you share :D

PS. you have inspired me to lengthen the comment limit by a whole lot... I will need to do that next round of revisions

If you check out Meteor, I would try out this tutorial first... pretty quick to get your feet wet: http://pineapple.io/resources/a-gentle-intro-to-meteor-nettuts-tutorial

The next round of revisions.... do they ever stop?!? ;)

Lol nope, they never stop. Although lately I've been preparing for rails rumble so I haven't had much time to work on it.

Tutorials are any resources you learn from.

Examples: an intro to html5 screencast, a pdf about git, photoshop effects tutorials, meta-programming in ruby, lambda calculus, higher-order fixed-point combinators.

Tools are websites, apps or services used -on- your project (indirectly), to aid the process.

Examples: A color scheme generator, email marketing software, usability heat maps, css3 code generators, a downloadable png compressor.

Assets are downloadable files used -in- your projects, usually as code, textures, or images.

Examples: a jquery sticky menu, photoshop brushes, background textures, mvc frameworks, twitter bootstrap, 960 grid system.
