    We are working on a JS shopping cart / API and plan to model it after the great example that @creynders made. I am really starting to grok the concept of dependency injection! The trick is getting others to as well :) Thanks for all the great work!

    @howardroark glad the example helped! If anything needs to change let me know. I've been busy with other projects ATM, but hope to pick up further geppetto development soon.

    @creynders Looking forward to seeing more :) @geekdave I think you may need to re-register with bower... Looks like the package was disolved from their system entirely.

    @creynders @geekdave Seeing as Marionette is changing fairly rapidly these days... do you still plan to keep up with it?
    I really like the idea of the "triumvirate". 1. The skeleton 2. The framework 3. The context

    @howardroark
    Would you ever want to explore something else as the official "framework"? I am finding Marionette to be a moving target and each time I go back to it some feature is depricated.
    Something like http://thoraxjs.org/ seems like it is likely to be more stable long term and preserve patterns that large scale apps really need. I mean it does power walmart's site if I am not mistaken.

    Plus it seems like Marionette is building along the lines of gepetto into v3... https://github.com/marionettejs/backbone.radio
    Then again, I guess thorax has all of it's own context opinions.

    @howardroark
    I really wish there was something like Marionette which was just various types of "robust views"
    I find I get lost trying to stitch together things like marionettes app object/router/controller with the components offered in gepetto
    Maybe the triumvirate could be more like... 1. The Skeleton 2. The Library 3. The Context == The Geppetto Framework
    ☰☱☲☳☴☵☶☷
    @howardroark
    Where #2 The Library is just sort of like a "jquery" of robust views and functions that applications tend to use a lot.
    #1 The Skeleton is the concept of View, Models & Collections that everyone loves
    #3 The Context is the core methods and ideas that wire it all together
    events, commands, dependency injection...
    Long story short... I feel Geppetto could pair with something that gives it more ownership over the role of "bringing something to life"

    I summed up these thoughts into something a bit more coherent... GeppettoJS/backbone.geppetto#86

    Hello
    Tolis Christomanos
    @chchrist
    just found out about this framework and since I used to be a Robotlegs user I am happy to find something close to it
    It seems though that there is not much traction. Is it used in production>?
    creynders
    @creynders
    hi @chchrist yes, I do use it in production. Here’s an example: https://github.com/d-pac/d-pac.client
    I really should find the time to finalize the next release and start promoting it, but it’s a rare commodity. Time that is. :grin:

    Hey @chchrist, I am working on https://github.com/forestcart/forestcart based from @creynders https://github.com/GeppettoJS/todomvc.geppetto example. I must say it was a really awesome jumping board! I can tell that he has a lot of experience building complex UI that need to be ready to adapt.
