If yes, what was the reason to apply a js framework with Yii?
Are there real benefits to use them, if yes what are these?

Why Backbone and not the others? Which one would you choose if you were just starting to use/know a js framework?

I think the general idea is to create rest application using Yii and then a separate client application using a js framework ?

After reading some blog posts about this subject, I've decided to use KnockoutJS. I think that was a good choice, this framework/library has amazing features, the JS code can be clean and clear (unlike plain jQuery), and the documentation is good.
Now I'm thinking to implement Yii's CGridView with Knockout as a Yii extension.

If you do create an extension can you update this thread so I'm notified. I'd love to try it.
There were performance issues on large lists, and I didn't have enough time for it, so I've dropped this idea... Sorry...

There is an extension for it.
I am not using it, though, because of the license.
ExtJS is probably great if you are after a desktop like development environment for the web.
And have a load of money to throw after it.
If I wanted a fuller js api, then I'd probably go with Angular or Ember.
But, nowadays, I'd probably use Backbone - or rather: Chaplin.
Thorax is also a great option.
There's just too many choices out there.
