Starting out with a REST server and a Coffeescript frontend
Looking for some help on where to begin, there are so many competing libraries and acronyms I get all dizzy trying to sort it all out.
I would like to
Create a REST backend (probably Python with Flask, in this case)
I am more at home with the backend stuff, need more advice on the frontend stuff. I realize this question is not a super good fit for the SO question format, please help me improve it, 'cause I could really use some guidance here.
I prefer to use jQuery for working with REST backends, but you can choose any other framework.
