Vienna looks nice. It looks very much like Backbone. I'm familiar with Backbone, but new to Opal and Vienna. Moving from Javascript to Opal feels like a big jump, but Opal + Vienna feels like too much. Do you know if there is a Opal::Backbone or how easy it would be to create something like that? I would like to see and compare Opal::Backbone to Opal::Vienna before making the transition

I'm not sure there is a Opal::Backbone
but Opal::Vienna is quite easy to pick honnestly
and the source is very small and readable
if you need anything
(I must admit the lack of documentation is a bit bothersome... )

I know Vienna is small and probably easy to learn, but I'd like to "upgrade" to Opal and it would be easier to migrate existing Backbone code to Opal than to an entirely new framework
It would also make it easier in learning how to translate Backbone in Javascript to Backbone in Opal

I understand :)
Unfortunately I'm not sure there is an opal backbone :sa:

I know, that’s fine. Just wondering how you could build it
