Kanso Package Repository
Kanso (GitHub: kanso ) has been changed to work more like a generic build system for CouchApps. It’s more framework agnostic, and includes a package repository, which is available at kan.so/packages. From Caolan McMahon in the New Kanso release and change of direction thread:
Recipes with Backbone
Recipes with Backbone (price: $24) is an ebook by Nick Gauthier and Chris Strom that covers an introduction to Backbone.js, namespacing, view templates, collection views, actions, animations, non-REST models, routes, and more. The full table of contents is here: Recipes with Backbone and excerpts are available for Collection View and Changes Feed.
I haven’t yet bought a copy for review, but the sample content looks promising. If you buy it, please let everyone know what you think in the comments!
Appify UI by Thomas Aylott helps package web apps as Mac OS X bundles. The thing that makes it slightly special is Node apps can be bundled just as easily as anything else. There’s a Node demo app, and instructions on how to make them in the project’s documentation.
