Getting started with Backbone and Marionette, I was about to copy the file at https://github.com/marionettejs/backbone.marionette/blob/master/lib/backbone.marionette.js to my local server, but wondered if there was a CDN version of it.

For Underscore and Backbone dev, I'm including these two files, respectively:



Is there a similar URL for backbone.marrionette.js?

Github is not a CDN. Don't use it like that. Also, don't include the HTTP:// when using a CDN domain or else on SSL pages you will get security errors.

You could simply use src="//documentcloud.github.com/backbone/backbone-min.js" which will be HTTP on HTTP requests and HTTPS on SSL requests.

Now as for CDN, take a look at CloudFlare CDNJS.com. Its not Akamai, but it's free.

Here is a link to the framework you were interested in //cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/backbone.marionette/0.10.2/backbone.marionette.min.js

Marionette is available on http://www.cdnjs.com search for it or just use //cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/backbone.marionette/0.10.2/backbone.marionette.min.js
