Build Status

backbone-parentmodel provides a set of extensions to Backbone.Model for working with nested structures where logic is assigned to nested Models and Collections. The core functionality overrides clone, clear, toJSON, and parse methods to handle the nesting and provides a few additional utility methods.

Nested structures are defined as:

const MyModel = ParentModel.extend({
    childModels: {
        myModel: MyModelConstructor
    childCollections: {
        myCollection: MyCollectionConstructor

childModels and childCollections must either be an object mapping property names to their constructors, or they may be functions returning an object mapping.
