Python EmberBuild

A skeleton application framework using Ember.js, minispade and EmberBuild.

Inspiration from, the purpose of building this was to eliminate a heavy set of dependancies and remove boiler-plate loader files like controllers.js, view.js etc.

EmberBuild will simply keep a list of all controllers, models and views and include them directly in the 'main' module.


$ /path/to/project

You can also use this as a library in your own project just include (see ember_build for usage)

Commandline flags

usage: [-h] [-t dev] [-v] project

positional arguments:
    project             Path to Ember project you want to compile

optional arguments:
    -h, --help          show this help message and exit
    -t dev, --type dev  Change Ember build type (live or dev)
    -v                  Change output verbosity (0-2) defaults to 0

In your browser visit index.html after you've ran the build process.
