Usage

var Backbone = require("Backbone"),
    connect = require("connect"),
    color = require("colors"),
    connect_backbone_router = require("./../"),

    request = require("request");

var app = connect();

var collections = {
    hitchhikers: new Backbone.Collection([
        new Backbone.Model({
            id: 0,
            name: "Zaphod"
        })
    ])
};

app.use(connect.logger());
app.use(connect.bodyParser());

app.use(connect_backbone_router({
    debug: true,
    path: "/data",
    collections: collections
}));

app.use(function(req,res,next) {
    res.end("That's all folks!");
});

var server = app.listen(8080);

Now you should be able to get the whole collection at http://localhost:8080/data/hitchhikers

The single model at http://localhost:8080/data/hitchhikers/0

Or an attribute at http://localhost:8080/data/hitchhikers/0/name
