Hey,

I guess this is more a feature request than anything else, and I'm not sure if there's any way of doing it, but I'm looking to use a different folder location for certain items, e.g. models go in ../shared/models.

I've got 2 projects that use the same API and I'm basically having to copy and paste my model, serializer and adapter files between the 2 projects. I'd like to have a ../shared/ folder that contains these models, serializers and adapters that I can then point ember-cli to.

Currently, I've tried using symbolic links but it seems that broccoli struggles to deal with symbolic links. Is there a way to change the default name, or import extra models from a different folder.

Sounds like a great thing for an addon. The addon can be that shared code between your applications. This will work perfectly today, without any special modifications.

The addon would just have a app/ tree with the adapter/, serializer/, and models/ files/folders. Once included in the two projects, those pieces would all be "magically" merged into the running application just as if you had authored them there directly.

Hmmm, I hadn't looked into ember addons before. Excellent! Thanks.

Just finished creating the addon and it works perfectly. Have even been able to pull out the bower modules that both apps use. Thanks heaps.
