    Thanks for the extremely digestible walk through!
    I didn’t even think I wanted to know this stuff. Now I’m pretty sure I do. 😀
    I could definitely think of some ways to utilize this now.

      I wasn’t really sure what I’d use it for either at first. Then, I needed a way to add a template on the fly without having to recreate and maintain it in two places for a small thing in Members. It was probably overkill for what I actually needed, but it helped me learn. Not to mention, it opens up the door for some other potentially useful things.

      I could see Underscore + Backbone being useful for the forum plugin I’m working on. Given the amount of page reloading that goes on with forums, doing things without reloading the page could be useful.

    Nice walk through. I’m now digging through the JS libraries distributed with core. Thank you.

    Thanks for this “AHA” post. I was looking at this the other day for a potential use case. Still not sure I need it, but this tutorial will definitely help me moving forward with other project use cases.

    Justin, amazing guide! I have not been able to find this information anywhere else online. How did you figure it out? On your own? If so, you must be a master programmer.

    Thanks for the guide and can’t wait to see what you come out with next!

    How do you loop post data using the javascript template?
