I do talk about specific frameworks. In the first part of the book, focused mostly on automating build and deployment processes, I use Grunt as the build tool of choice, although I try not to focus too heavily on Grunt as a tool, but just a means to an end. In fact, I dedicated an entire appendix to pointing out that Grunt is just a tool and that there are many more available (Gulp, Broccoli, npm run, to name a few).
The MVC chapter covers Backbone (an MVC framework) and Rendr (a library that enables you to do server-side rendering with Backbone)
The testing chapter covers Tape which is a tiny test runner.
A few more libraries are covered as well
Too often development books provide a few trivial examples but don't get in to the nuts and bolts of getting something to work.
It's great that you cover issues like the build process and tools you are likely going to be using in your day to day work.
Good luck with the book.
Thanks for the code samples.
