EmberJS + Rails

EmberJS + Rails

Creating Ambitious Web and Mobile Apps with EmberJS and Ruby on Rails

About the Book

With the release of Ember CLI and Apache Cordova EmberJS is growing up. It is now easier than ever before to create slick web applications and HTML5 apps. There is, however, a steep learning curve to go through for most web developers. This book aims to take your from zero EmberJS knowledge to deploying your first web and iOS applications.

I will cover the following

  • Creating a new EmberJS Twitter clone with Ember CLI
  • Setting up a Rails backend using Grape
  • Setting up a Single Sign On using Doorkeeper
  • Setting up EmberJs tests and api stubs
  • Adding custom transforms for dates and files
  • Uploading files with Ember Data
  • Client side validation with Ember EasyForm and Ember Validations
  • Creating sign in and sign up pages in Ember
  • Create a tweet
  • Delete a tweet
  • Follow another user
  • Creating a list
  • Favouriting a tweet
  • Restricting access to your tweets
  • Deployment (including from Travis CI)
  • Turning your web app into an iOS app with Cordova
  • Development setup for coding from anywhere on your iPad with SSH, tmux, zsh, vim and Digital Ocean

EmberJS code will be written in coffeescript. Some knowledge of Javascript and Ruby on Rails is assumed.
