Backbone is a lightweight JavaScript library that provides a structure for organizing and building web applications. It follows the Model-View-Presenter (MVP) architectural pattern and offers key components like models, views, collections, and events. Backbone focuses on providing a minimal set of functionality, allowing developers to choose and integrate additional libraries as needed.

Compared to other popular frameworks like React or Angular, Backbone is more lightweight and flexible. It does not enforce a specific way of structuring your application, giving you more freedom to design and implement according to your needs. Backbone is well-suited for smaller projects or situations where a full-fledged framework may be too heavy.
