A few weeks ago I decided to dive into Backbone.js by rewriting my pretty static web portfolio page as a Backbone app. The first stage of this was to create a static, JSON-powered app which is now successfully being used at http://web.kentheberling.com/. A weekend later, I decided to have a bit more fun and tinker with the app to make the list of entries editable. Now, of course, I don’t want y’all editing my portfolio directly, so I instead forked the main portfolio to use local storage.
The app hopefully is well designed enough to not need much instruction, but the basics are:
- The app uses local storage. Each return visit in the same browser should show you where you left off last time!
- The app will init with a single portfolio entry if you don’t have any.
- You can inline edit existing entries, or use the form to add a new entry.
- Trash an entry using the trash icon.
