Today we made a pretty significant update to the skeleton and have called it 2.0 since the update is to come into compliance with MarionetteJS 2.x. In addition to fixing the templates to match updated naming and functionality in Marionette 2, we also switched our library dependencies to be installed with Bower. Previously every time one of the dependent libraries updated we had to go update the skeleton. With bower each time you create a new project from our skeleton you will get the newest patch for the dependencies like jQuery, underscore and backbone.
Brunch with Marionette helps us get off to a quick start when building our backbone based applications for our clients. And we hope it will help you as well.
