This is a bit different from your “State of JS” or “State of Frontend” surveys because it only focuses on EmberJS but it has been running longer than any of them. If you have used Ember even just a little bit we would appreciate your opinions and we want to listen to our community to find ideas on how to improve!
Marco Otte-Witte on why simplabs loves Ember and thinks it’s a great choice, even in 2021:
Ember allows teams to excel at executing their product vision and focus on shipping instead of getting lost in low-level rabbit holes where little business value can be found.
Many of these “vs” style articles are too shallow or narrowly-focused to be of much use. Not this one. It even has a table of contents. Dive in deep for the full analysis or jump straight to the end for the
if/then framework selection advice.
This is a very detailed article on:
directly comparing Ember and React, using the latest idioms and best practices from both frameworks.
It goes really deep into the differences and the developer experiences of both frameworks and is a really good read for someone who is curious about what modern Ember looks like, especially if they have some previous React knowledge.
Ember has always focused on building the best framework that people with different levels of skill can use together to build web applications. Octane updates Ember’s components and reactivity system to make them more modern, easier to use, and just more fun.
Glimmer;‘s Components and Reactivity are the two big changes in this major release from the Ember team. Both are opt-in and fully interoperable with existing code. Read Yehuda’s full announcement for all the details.
If you’ve been paying attention in Ember lately you may have heard the term “Octane” floating around here and there recently, and wondered what all the excitement was about. It may seem like a bit of a big deal - and that’s because it kind of is!
Part 1 in a 5-part series covering: native classes, angle bracket syntax & named arguments, tracked properties, modifiers, and Glimmer components. Part 2 is out as well.
Starring Yehuda Katz and Tom Dale (co-creators of Ember.js) and many other big names from the Ember community, “Ember.js: The Documentary” explores why and how Ember.js came to be, the pioneers behind its creation and the life-altering decisions that go into making open-source software.
These mini-documentaries are so cool!
Another incremental release of EmberJS but there are some interesting nuggets in there. A major addition to the declarative templating system, improvements to polymorphic relationship lazy loading in Ember Data and a big improvement to testing helpers 🎉
The Energizer Bunny of front-end frameworks keeps going and going…
This project is designed to be a fully-functional, static site implementation of a blog system that is mostly compatible with Ghost and is built on EmberJS with fully working out of the box SEO friendly output. It supports being hosted on AWS S3 or any other static site hosting solution.
Check out the demo. It’s 100% static and hosted on S3. 🎉
Ember has been humming along for years, with direction set by the core team, based on their instincts, experiences, and community interactions. And it’s worked well!
As our community grows though, the sheer volume of good ideas makes it hard to rely on our core team and primary influencers to collect all the great ideas out there. So we’re updating the process to help give voice to all those of you who want it.
The Ember team would like you to write a blog post to propose goals and direction for Ember in the remainder of 2018. The content of these posts will help us to draft our first Roadmap RFC.
Accent is an internal tool we built to help us manage translations for the applications we develop at Mirego.
We used Elixir (Phoenix and Absinthe) and Ember.js and just a few weeks ago we open-sourced the project so we could share it with the community since there are not a lot of fully-working open-source Web applications for both of these technologies.
Very cool. I’ve been toying with the idea of a GraphQL API around our news and podcasts. I should 👀 under the covers and see how Accent’s is built.
Today the Ember project is releasing version 3.0.0 of Ember.js, Ember Data, and Ember CLI. Ember 3.0 doesn’t introduce any new functionality, instead it focuses the framework by removing long-deprecated APIs and support for legacy platforms.
A major version release with no new functionality: bold move. Perhaps a winning strategy if it can garner similar praise as Apple’s Snow Leopard update to macOS (nee OS X).
Ember is like the Energizer Bunny of web frameworks. Can you believe the team has been working on it since 2011? That’s like forever in webdev-years.
