It’s an honor to be doing a second edition of CoffeeScript: Accelerated JavaScript Development. I’m looking forward to hearing from my Beta Book readers about how I can make this book as good as it can be before it goes to press.

Best, Trevor Burnham

I’m curious, why does this book talk about integrating coffeescript with Backbone.js instead of Spine.js (which is written in CoffeeScript)? Has Spine basically died? Or is there another reason? Just curious. Thanks!

Hi Anders,

Two reasons, really:

  1. I’m more familiar with Backbone (we use it at HubSpot, where I work), and
  2. Backbone is more widely used.

Spine is a fine library, and is certainly not dead. But I don’t think CoffeeScripters should prefer one library over another just because one is written in CoffeeScript.
