RequireCS project boilerplate on GitHub

So I finally got around to creating a repository on GitHub. I thought it might be useful for others to see the project structure I used to build Shikaku Madness, so I ripped out most of the guts and uploaded it. It uses Backbone for structure, and loads dependencies using RequireJS. I also used James Burke’s CoffeeScript plugin for RequireJS, which means you can write CoffeeScript and it’ll be interpreted on page load, without having a separate compilation step.

It’s pretty bare bones at the moment, with just two “views” and buttons to transition between them. I haven’t decided how much additional code I’ll put in, but it’s definitely a work in progress. If you have any interest in what a simple “modern” Javascript project might look like, you should definitely check it out on GitHub.
