geddski / nesting.js
Created Jan 14, 2012
helper function for nesting backbone collections.
View nesting.js
function nestCollection(model, attributeName, nestedCollection) {
//setup nested references
for (var i = 0; i < nestedCollection.length; i++) {
model.attributes[attributeName][i] =;
//create empty arrays if none
nestedCollection.bind('add', function (initiative) {
if (!model.get(attributeName)) {
model.attributes[attributeName] = [];
gcollazo / Backbone.sync_csrftoken.js
Created Sep 25, 2011
This is what I did to insert the CSRF token in backbone requests. This works with django.
View Backbone.sync_csrftoken.js
var oldSync = Backbone.sync;
Backbone.sync = function(method, model, options){
options.beforeSend = function(xhr){
xhr.setRequestHeader('X-CSRFToken', CSRF_TOKEN);
return oldSync(method, model, options);
