Please keep in mind that this project is 'canary'. For the sake of adopting new features as early as possible, it is developed using the latest unstable versions of everything like ember canary, es6, iojs etc. This will definitely cause instability.

Currently demonstrated features:

  • CRUD - API with a SPA client
  • User authentication
  • Data relationships
  • File uploads
  • Photo gallery and viewer
  • Server connected UI components
  • Data bound modals
  • Basic CMS
  • Geo data and mapping
  • Many more coming
