The Ember.js Core Team has taken ownership of the ember NPM package. Here's hoping we get a new build soon!

Ember for Node

Ember.js is a framework for building ambitious client-side applications on the web. Now you can use the same Ember tools in node code and in node-based asset pipelines like Convoy.

Using This Package

Just add ember as a requirement to your package.json:

"dependencies": {
  "ember": "~0.9"

In your code, you can load the entire Ember stack by just requiring the package. This will add Ember to the global namespace in your application.


MyApp = Ember.Application.create({
  hi: function() { console.log("Hi! I'm an app!"); }

If you don't want to use the entire Ember stack, you can just require the specific module that you want. For example, a lot of server side code just needs States for statecharting:


MyState = Ember.State.create({


Using Ember with Convoy

Building an Ember application in the browser is very easy when using Convoy. Just require ember in your main application file.

// In some JS module included by convoy:
require('ember'); // <- convoy will automatically pull in all of Ember.

UserView = Ember.View.extend({
  template: Ember.Handlebars.compile('{{firstName}} {{lastName}}')

If you want to store your Handlebars templates in a separate file, Ember for Node has a HandlebarsCompiler that will precompile the templates for you. Here is an example Convoy pipeline configuration:

pipeline = convoy({
  'app.js': {
    packager: 'javascript',
    compilers: {
      '.hbr': require('ember/packager').HandlebarsCompiler

app = express.createServer();

This will now make .hbr files available as modules. In your app code, you can load the template via a normal require:

// user_view.js


UserView = Ember.View.extend({
  template: require('./user_template') // template in user_template.hbr

For a fully functioning example of an application, check out the examples folder.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
