Does the Parse JavaScript SDK work with jQuery Mobile?

The Parse JavaScript SDK should work fine with jQuery Mobile. We don't yet have any jQuery Mobile-specific documentation, but you have two options:

  1. You can ignore the whole Backbone aspect of the Parse SDK and just use the classes we provide in your app in whichever way you prefer. You don't have to use routers and collections and all that just to use Parse. You can follow our Developer Guide, which will show you how to simply create and save objects to our servers.

  2. Or, you can build your jQuery Mobile app using Backbone, but replace Backbone.Model with Parse.Object, Backbone.Collection with Parse.Collection, etc. There is a third-party tutorial that walks you through the Backbone part, and we have a guide for converting an existing Backbone app to use Parse.
