Adding HTTP headers to AJAX calls in Backbone.js

Just a quick note about setting custom header in the HTTP request that Backbone.js manages. This is super easy to do. In the example code below, I have a Backbone.Collection assigned to messagesCollection variable and I'm triggering a fetch on that collection: messagesCollection.fetch({ headers: { 'x-my-custom-header-1':'foobar', 'x-my-rest-api-version':'1.0' } });
