Twitter Browser Example
Some time ago I watched the Sproutcore Training video's presented by Greg Moeck. In part 1 of the training Greg builds the Twitter Browser. Since then we have ember.js which, as you may know, initially started as Sproutcore 2. Many concepts in this training are still applicable to ember.js and I think this still makes a good resource if you want to get started with ember.js. To get familiar with ember.js, I decided to build the Twitter Browser using ember.js.
The application uses Ruby 1.9.x and a Rails 3.2.x back-end, mainly for its asset pipeline which makes organizing your JS files extremely easy. Also, it uses the Twitter gem to retrieve user- and tweetdata from Twitter.
I'm using Ember Data to retrieve data from the server.
