Manageable, modular projects with Ember.js / Ember.ListView improvements

Erik Bryn will be in town again and will give a quick talk about the latest improvements/features being added to Ember.ListView.


Steven Kane will address some common "pain-points" of building manageable, modular projects with Ember.js.  We will cover effective strategies for isolating and debugging confusing behavior using jsfiddle and jsbin.

TLDR: This talk will take you from debugging/isolating issues using jsfiddle through to a full out-of-the-box suite of tools for rapid local prototyping using grunt.js with key features like livereload, file watching, for server/client communication, and an elegant module management system called minispade.js.  Don't miss it.

Then we will transition to talking about the challenge of locating a suite of build tools that will make local development MUCH less painful.  We will cover some of the details of a ember starter kit that 4-south has made available on Github for developers looking for an out-of-box build tool suite that will get them up and running quickly.  The package includes build tools for watching and rebuilding all project files, it includes grunt-minispade (based on Yehuda Katz's minispade.js) for sleek module management, and has the ever-sexy livereload feature that many developers love.

Finally, we will show another open-source project that 4-south has produced that utilizes express.js, mongodb, and running on node to serve an api to our Ember application via a custom Adapter.  This project should help developers exploring different options for network communication, api serving, and techniques for modifying Ember-data's adapters.

    Thanks very much for attending despite the unpleasant weather. I hope our chattering and demos were helpful in some way. We are working to deploy the slideshow application soon but we wanted to make the slides available to you asap. As such, we ran the app through a phantomjs pdf generator and put the slides here :

    Refer to my other post to find the other relevant github repos. As always, send me email at [masked] or @stv_kn if you have questions/feedback. Steve Kane/ Pete Chen

    We are excited for this meetup and want egveryone to get as much out of it as we have gotten already in preparing for it!

    If you are new to Emberjs, feel free to ask us anything you wish during or after the talks. We are looking to form relationships not to pontificate!

    There are several github repos that are related to this talk. You are welcome to clone them ahead of time but they will certainly not be required during the actual presentation.

    find them at

    a module that we wrote may also be found at

    We want questions and so do the core team members so let's have a discussion wherever possible. and beer...
