Ember-infused CoffeeScript

branch: master
README.md

Build Status

EmberScript

EmberScript is a CoffeeScript-derived language which takes advantage of the Ember.js runtime. Ember constructs such as Inheritance, Mixins, Bindings, Observers, etc. are all first-class citizens within EmberScript.

Examples

class PostsController extends Ember.ArrayController
  trimmedPosts: ~>
    @content.slice(0, 3)

compiles to:

var PostsController;
var get$ = Ember.get;
PostsController = Ember.ArrayController.extend({
  trimmedPosts: Ember.computed(function () {
    return get$(this, 'content').slice(0, 3);
  }).property('content.@each')
});

For a more comprehensive list of live examples, check out the main EmberScript website.

Is this ready to use?

For the most part, but use at your own risk. See the todo list for details. It is recommended to use EmberScript side by side with javascript and/or coffeescript.
