This README outlines the details of collaborating on this Ember application.

Working example


You will need the following things properly installed on your computer.


To get up and running with this project:

  • git clone this repository and cd into it cd ember-cli-blog
  • npm install to install npm dependencies
  • ember s to start the server!

Data will be stored in an in memory database and if configured, also replicated to a CouchDB instance.

To setup CouchDB data replication, configure ENV.remote_couch inside ./config/environment.js to point to your CouchDB location.

To setup a CouchDB instance on your own machine:

  • install couchDB from
  • npm install -g add-cors-to-couchdb
  • add-cors-to-couchdb
  • update config/environment.js local_couch and remote_couch to your CouchDB instance name.
  • update config/environment.js ENV.rootURL in the production environment
  • To use deploy create a file .env.deploy.production in the root of this project containing something like db=


Running Tests

  • ember test
  • ember test --server


  • ember build (development)
  • ember build --environment production (production)


To deploy to your CouchDB cluster

  • ember deploy production (Set your credentials in the .env.deploy.production file)


ember-simple-auth-pouch authenticator with custom data adapter to setup push replication after login. See authenticators/pouch.js and adapters/application for further details.


CouchDB write protected database:

Registration required example for write persmission: Add users in the normal CouchDB way. For example by adding the following document to the _users database:

  "_id": "org.couchdb.user:test",
  "name": "test",
  "password": "test",
  "roles": [
  "type": "user"

After that you can protect your bloggr database from unauthorized writes by adding the following design document to the bloggr database.

   "_id": "_design/only_users_write",
   "validate_doc_update": "function (newDoc, oldDoc, userCtx) {\n\tif (userCtx.roles.indexOf(\"bloggr\") == -1 && userCtx.roles.indexOf(\"_admin\") == -1) {\n\t\tthrow({unauthorized: \"Only registered users can save data!\"});\n\t}\n}"

For cloudant you have to create a _users database and insert the userdocument from above or use the Hoodie CouchDB User Management App
