They called it Brisket because it was developed in-house so its name had to start with the letter “B” as in Bloomberg.
The cornerstone of isomorphic concept is sharing the code between the client and the server with the goal to leave only up to about 10 percent to each of the two. That is very different than 50/50 average.
It was designed with the following principle in mind: to share templates, application logic, data models and more in order to create fast sites that render on the server side but feel like a single page application on the client side.
Brisket is built on Backbone.js so it offers a familiar structure of models, views and controllers/routers. The difference is that instead of running in the browser, Brisket is environment neutral.
Designed to use promises (rather than callbacks) makes the asynchronous code avoid “callback hell”.
