Since last July 2014, I started learning about Backbone.js for Soundtracking.com’s web client. To learn more about Backbone.js and REST API/Client architecture, I decided that I would spend the rest of 2014 working on creating a Delicious clone.
Unfortunately, it is only about 50% finished, and I don’t intend to complete it. I achieved the initial goal of understanding these things and I feel that I learned what I needed from this project. Big things I learned from this project were:
- Creating REST API
- Creating single page app using Backbone.js
- Rolling out my own OAUTH2
