This project helps to run isomorphic Backbone applications on node.js servers. It intends to provide a feasible subset of a set of adapters to fill in the blanks of missing DOM and HTML5 APIs on the server side. For more context on the problematics, see e.g. my Mozilla Hacks article or HTML5 DevConf presentation, or for another viewpoint, some of Spike's isomorphic app presentations. This project exists for those that don't want to build a full abstraction layer on top of Backbone to hide jQuery, XHR and Backbone History API problems.
