    <script id="bottomnav-template" type="text/x-kendo-template">
        <span class="k-icon k-i-#= icon #"> </span>
        <span> #= text # </span>
        <span id="badge-#=text#"></span>
            template: kendo.template($("#bottomnav-template").html()),
            items: [
                { data: { view: "inbox" }, icon: "envelope", text: "Inbox", selected: true },
                { data: { view: "calendar" }, icon: "calendar", text: "Calendar" },
