The `model` and `uri_object_key` are configurations for a resource's
implementation, and aren't related to the data provided by the caller.
The `model` attribute is optionally used to associate a WebAPIResource
subclass with a particular database model. If set, many of the operations
(GET requests to lists or to objects, DELETEs, etc.) are implemented for
you, but otherwise, you have to implement those yourself (by overriding
get(), get_list(), delete(), etc.).
`uri_object_key` defines the name of the capture group in the URL's regex
that captures the iD used to look up the appropriate object (defined by
`model`) in the database.
You don't need to do anything with Backbone to make use of the API. a
$.post() should be fine. However, it sounds like maybe the WebAPIResource
isn't implemented fully.
Can you show me the code you've written, how you're calling into the API,
and what the results are when you do so? We can help you write the
WebAPIResource to do what you need.

> How do I actually do the POST call?
> I tried just the usual jQuery $.post(...), but djblets/webapi/
> resources.base.py tries to get the "model" and "uri_object_keys" and
> fails since they are not part of the post data. It looks like I need to
> create a view and model by deriving from Backbone.View.extend

> My use case:
> 1. Based upon a UI event, post to the WebAPIResource
> 2. In the WebAPIResource.create method:
> 1. Lookup current review, post a comment based upon the approval
> request (similar to a ship-it comment)
> 2. Log vote into a new database model
> 3. Query the existing votes and if everything looks good, trigger a
> merge of the change or rejection email
> C++ and Python, so I'm sorry if my question is elementary.
