Backbone add models to collection (Titanium Alloy or any Backbone Collection)
View gist:6cc3ba1eb3667991299f
// Often you want to dump a large amount of models into a collection at one time.
// This take models from one collection and adds thems to another
// This assumes you have two collections already initialized with models.
// If you had one collection that had change events wired to render a view you might use this.
//This would work, however, it will fire an add event everytime one of the models is added.
// This will slow your app down ad it will try to render over and over again as many times as the models you are adding
// To avoid this, use the silent option

jessekinsman / Remove objects with duplicate prop value in array
Last active Mar 28, 2019
Returns a new array with objects that have a unique value by the prop that is passed to it.
View Remove objects with duplicate prop value in array
