backbone-parse-es6 is an extension to backbone-es6 which is a fork of Backbone converting and modularizing it into idiomatic ES6. The impetus for this fork is to experiment with modernizing and making Backbone easier to modify in a granular fashion. In particular the Parse JS SDK (http://www.parse.com) previously also was a fork of Backbone, but with the 1.6+ SDK release the Backbone API was unceremoniously removed. backbone-es6 provides the base for backbone-parse-es6 which provides a solution for Backbone dependent Parse users.
Another reason for backbone-parse-es6 is supporting end to end documentation via ESDoc for ES6 frameworks and apps built on top of backbone-parse-es6. Two ESDoc plugins, esdoc-plugin-jspm & esdoc-plugin-extends-replace along with a complete integrated set of Gulp tasks, typhonjs-core-gulptasks provide documentation generation across multiple modules / source roots via JSPM along with ESLint and several JSPM & NPM tasks.
backbone-parse-es6 uses JSPM / SystemJS for dependency management and bundling distributions. For an example of using JSPM / SystemJS directly with backbone-parse-es6 including typhonjs-core-gulptasks support please see these demo repos:
When a new Backbone release is made (next 1.2.4) backbone-es6 will be updated. Tests from Backbone will be ported to backbone-es6 with the upcoming 1.2.4 release. Forthcoming tests for Parse integration will be added to this repo.
This repository contains several pre-packed downloads in the
dist/ directory. There are AMD, CJS, and Global distributions that contain the Backbone and Parse libraries. The "global-inclusive" bundle includes the latest Parse (1.6.14), jQuery (2.2.0) and Underscore (1.8.3) libraries.
