ember-rails allows you to include Ember.JS into your Rails 3.x application.
The gem will also pre-compile your handlebars templates when building your asset pipeline. It includes development and production copies of Ember.
You can see an example of how to use the gem here
Add the gem to your application Gemfile:
bundle install and add the following line to
//= require ember
If yopu just want to use Ember Metal (no View or Handlebars support) you can use:
//= require ember-runtime
Ember-rails also provides a way to run Ember in development mode, you can switch out your require statements to use the dev copies like so:
//= require ember-dev
If you want to copy ember to your own project, you can use the inbuilt generator
rails g ember_rails:install
If you want to use the latest and greatest Ember, you can use the generator to download and compile the latest version for you.
rails g ember_rails:install --head
Ask Rails to serve HandlebarsJS and pre-compile templates to Ember
by putting each template in a dedicated ".js.hjs" or ".handlebars" file
and including the assets in your layout:
Bundle all templates together thanks to Sprockets,
//= require_tree .
Now a single line in the layout loads everything:
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
- Fork the project.
- Make your feature addition or bug fix.
- Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
- Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
