Tools used to create a complex JavaScript app – notes for an Async mini talk

I’ve spent the last 6 months leading the team who worked with Tesco on the development of the Tesco Food app in the Chrome Web Store. If there is time I hope to give a quick 5 min talk at Brighton’s Async group for the International Show and Tell this week, these are the notes for that talk.

Tesco Food App, Chrome Web Store

Backbone

jQuery templates for templating

Selenium for automated browser testing

jQuery Mockjax for mocking data

Build script with Rake

Wish I’d used Google closure compiler
