How to Go From Zero to Serverless with Backand, Part 3

In our last article (Part 2), we fleshed out the requirements for our application, built a data schema, and developed a relatively simple UI to manage our to-do list. With the preparation work done, we’re finally ready to tie everything together. In this article, we’ll take it a step further by adding in dynamic population functionality using JavaScript. We’ll include the dependencies we need to get the project off the ground, look at configuring and using the Backand SDK, then we’ll use jQuery to drive our UI population.
Adding Dependencies
As mentioned in our previous article, we’ll be building out our UI using jQuery. This will impose some responsiveness limitations as we near the end of the project, but for the time being we should be able to make do, as our project is relatively simple. The primary way in which this will manifest is that there will be some hard-coding of HTML in the JavaScript code that, in a framework like React or Angular, would be handled for you. In the final article of this series, we’ll look at some alternative UI frameworks that can be used to simplify this kind of effort.
