Front-end revolution with Ember.js

The quickest up-to-date book to properly learn Ember.js

About the Book

With Ember.js we've reached a plateau and finally found the right way to do web applications.  

In a short time, you'll learn how to build an ambitious web application from the ground up:

  • Signing up and logging in (with Ember Simple Auth - token authentication),
  • Connecting to the back-end (cloud API provided, as well as fully configured Rails API code - JSON API spec),
  • Querying, Saving and editing resources,  
  • Interactive inputs, components, charts,
  • Animations,
  • Deploying (here's a finished app we are building -,
  • Useful production tips and insights on Ember's future developments.

Ember.js is not just a framework, it's a business decision.

Tired of insane JavaScript madness and dealing with build tools and configurations that don't really matter in the whole scheme of things? Full days are lost on this. With the help of this book you can speed up development process and focus on what you want to do: building a usable product.

Ember continues to be an antidote to the insane front-end ecosystem.

Let this book convince you it's worth building your next rich web application with Ember.js. All code (front-end, back-end in Rails) included. Make yourself a favour and get 145 pages of well-structured Ember goodies now!

What I like the most in the book is the excellent ratio of text, pictures and code which all together gives a great overview of Ember.js. Definitely recommended.

Just wanted to let you know that your book helped and continues to help me a lot. I love how you go into detail about how one could go about doing something incorrectly then provide steps on how to solve those problems. The book’s knowledge assisted the development of a school district’s portal which gets hundreds of thousands of hits.
