Backbone.js is a lightweight JavaScript library that provides the structure for organizing front-end web applications. The library offers an MVC (Model-View-Controller) and MVP (Model-View-Presenter) architecture, which helps keep code organized and maintainable. Components include models that represent data, views to render user interfaces, collections of data items, events for communication between components, and routers used to manage application state and URLs. Backbone.js enables developers to create single-page applications or complex user interfaces by offering the tools necessary for building client-side web apps that can work with RESTful APIs while keeping server interaction minimal. It has been influential in shaping the design of many modern frontend frameworks like React and Vue.js.
