This addon provides a best effort polyfill for the ember-factory-for feature added in Ember 2.12.

Please review emberjs/rfcs#150 for more details.


ember install ember-factory-for-polyfill


import Ember from 'ember';

export default Ember.Service.extend({
  someMethod() {
    let owner = Ember.getOwner(this);
    let ValidatorFactory = owner.factoryFor('validator:post');
    let validator = ValidatorFactory.create();



After you upgrade your application to Ember 2.12, you should remove ember-factory-for-polyfill from your package.json.


Addons generally support many different Ember versions, so leaving ember-factory-for-polyfill in place for consumers of your addon is perfectly normal. When the addon no longer supports Ember versions older than 2.12, we recommend removing ember-factory-for-polyfill from your package.json and doing a major version bump.


This addon is tested against quite a few past Ember versions. Check config/ember-try.js for the current list, but the list of supported Ember versions at the time of authoring was:

  • 2.3
  • 2.4
  • 2.8
  • 2.12
  • 2.16 (canary at the time)

For compatibility with older Ember versions prior to 2.3, please use ember-getowner-polyfill instead.
