Ember Data - WordPress Adapter

This project is intended as a basis for combining Ember as a frontend for a WordPress backend. You can use it as the starting point for a WordPress theme, or a completely standalone app that just retrieves data from WordPress.


This project utilises two key developments from Ember and WordPress. Firstly the ability to write a custom adapter for Ember Data, in this case it is possible to use the DS.RESTAdapter as-is and simply extend DS.RESTSerializer.

Secondly the WP REST API which is currently being developed as a plugin with a view to be be merged to core in the next major release (4.1).

Currently this requires the Canary build of Ember Data and the latest WP-API, whilst this does not preclude production usage, you should be aware that both are undergoing active development and the API may change quickly.


Currently the following routes are supported:


Installation & Setup

You will need Node.js installed to run the build script and a WordPress installation with the WP API plugin activated.

  1. Clone the repo
    $ git clone
  • Install Bower and Gulp globally if you do not have them already
    $ npm install -g bower gulp
  • Enter the cloned directory and run the build script
    $ cd Ember-Data-WordPress && npm install
  • Modify the environment variables to point to your WordPress installation
    $ cp .env.sample .env
  • Once you have updated these you will need to re-compile the changes
    $ gulp build
