jQuery Question

How to receive back the data via ajax call in my modular js structure?

Its a very basic java-script with modular structure, basically what I'm trying to do is , requesting a random quote via an API, printing them on the HTML page via Mustache.js. Earlier without using the modular structure way, I managed to accomplish this task, but I wanted to try the modular way too.

The problem i'm facing now is that whenever i try to render my data (i.e quote + author) , I recieve an error on my console that the function is not defined.

Please check my code ~

(function (){
var quoting ={
quotei : [],
template : $("#quoteTemplate").html(),
init: function (){
this.cacheDom();
this.bindEvents();
this.createQuote();
this.recieve();
this.renderx();

},

cacheDom: function(){
this.$el = $('#quotez');
this.$button = this.$el.find('button');
this.$template = this.$el.find('#quoteTemplate').html();

},

bindEvents: function(){
this.$button.on('click',this.createQuote.bind(this));

},

renderx: function(data){

this.$el.html(Mustache.render(this.template,data));

},

createQuote: function(){

$.ajax({
url:'https://andruxnet-random-famous-quotes.p.mashape.com/?cat=famous',
type:'GET',
data:{},
dataType:'json',
success : function(data){;
this.render(data)

},
beforeSend: function(xhr){
xhr.setRequestHeader("X-Mashape-Authorization","cvkQkHJurZmshuIhXxwXzIjBchHVp1yk0rDjsnNambAJ9duu7v");
}
});

},

};
quoting.init();

})()


Please help me out and pardon for any mistakes , as this is my first time posting on StackOverflow.

Here is the refactored code

Working Demo: here Output: [object Object] { author: "Martin Luther King Jr.", category: "Famous", quote: "In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." }

Code:

(function ($) {

  function quoting() {

    this.quotei = [];
    this.template = $("#quoteTemplate").html();
    this.init();
  }

  quoting.prototype = {
    init: function () {
      this.cacheDom();
      this.bindEvents();
      this.createQuote();
      //this.recieve(); 
      //this.renderx(); 
    },

    cacheDom: function(){
      this.$el = $('#quotez');
      this.$button = this.$el.find('button');
      this.$template = this.$el.find('#quoteTemplate').html();
    },

    bindEvents: function(){
      this.$button.on('click', this.createQuote.bind(this));
    }, 

    renderx: function(data) {
        console.log(data);
        //this.$el.html(Mustache.render(this.template,data));
    },

    createQuote: function(){
    var self = this;
    $.ajax({
       url:'https://andruxnet-random-famous-quotes.p.mashape.com/?cat=famous',
       type: 'GET',
       dataType: 'json',
       beforeSend: function(xhr) {
         xhr.setRequestHeader("X-Mashape-Authorization","cvkQkHJurZmshuIhXxwXzIjBchHVp1yk0rDjsnNambAJ9duu7v");
       }
     }).done(function(data) {
          self.renderx(data);
    })

   } 

  };

var myQuote = new quoting();

})(window.jQuery);
