Backbone is a lightweight JavaScript library that provides the structure needed to build web applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, and views with declarative event handling. It is designed to work seamlessly with RESTful APIs and is often used in conjunction with libraries like Underscore.js and jQuery.

While Backbone was once a popular choice for structuring front-end applications, its usage has declined in favor of more modern frameworks like React, Angular, and Vue. As a result, Backbone is considered a legacy library and is not actively maintained. Developers are encouraged to explore newer alternatives for building complex web applications.
