I see the different native mobile libraries available in the Dev Center, but I'm confused about how to use Kinvey in my web app. I know there is an HTML5 and Backbone library to help with the client side, but I don't understand how this integrates with my server (I'm running a Rails setup right now).

There are two main strategies for using Kinvey in a web app:
## Backend Replacement
### Backend Supplement
It sounds like you have an existing Rails infrastructure setup. If you'd like to continue leveraging that, you can use Kinvey from your existing server setup. Rather than managing your own database, for example, you could make calls directly against the Kinvey REST API and use that as your data store.
