backbone example - serialize form + update on change
window.MyView = Backbone.View.extend({
initialize: ->
this.template = window.JST["MyView"]
this.model.bind('change', this.render)
render: ->
events: {
update: ->
form = this.$("form").serializeObject()
jQuery.fn.serializeObject = ->
arrayData = @serializeArray()
objectData = {}
$.each arrayData, ->
if @value?
value = @value
value = ''
if objectData[@name]?
unless objectData[@name].push
objectData[@name] = [objectData[@name]]
objectData[@name].push value
objectData[@name] = value
return objectData

I found it helpful to compile templates into JavaScript, so that they don't have to be included in the page

Great, thanks guys.
