Ember App Kit aims to be the foundation for ambitious web applications built with Ember. It's intended to be used either on its own or as the base scaffolding for projects using Ember Tools, generator-ember and a hypothetical official executable at some point in the future.
This project has been extracted out of several real world applications and is actively used. Currently it covers the basics fairly well, but much still needs to be done. As we learn and as more contributors join in it continues to evolve. If you encounter any bugs, clunky features or missing documentation, just submit an issue and we'll respond ASAP.
At the very least, it helps setup your Ember.js applications directory structure.
We welcome ideas and experiments.

Some ideas in ember-app-kit originated in work by Yapp Labs (@yapplabs) with McGraw-Hill Education Labs (@mhelabs) on yapplabs/glazier. Thanks to Yapp and MHE for supporting the Ember ecosystem!
