### What It Does

The `ember-cli-mirage` addon is a client-side server to help you build, test, and demo your Ember app. It helps developers be more productive by providing ways to generate fake data, allowing front-end engineers to spend more time focusing on the UI.

### Why I Like It

As I was informally polling the community about their favorite Ember addons, ember-cli-mirage came up A LOT. For good reason, too. It's well-supported by the addon maintainers, there's a dedicated [documentation site](, and there's support on the [Ember Community Discord server]( in the #ec-mirage channel.

> "It’s a part of the ecosystem I dearly miss when I work with other frameworks."
As an extra bonus, EmberMap has generously made their ["Mirage Tips and Tricks" video series]( free to everyone (usually for subscribers only!) for December. Be sure to check it out!

Do you use this addon? [Or one like it?](,-fixtures,-and-factories) We'd love to hear about the Ember addons that bring you joy!
