I’m trying to convert some of the scripts on my site to start using Ember and running into some problems. I haven’t found a good example of what I’m trying to do so I’m struggling with the concepts.
Currently the back-end provides several API endpoints for me to call (e.g. /api/users’, ‘/api/orders’, etc.) which are called to generate a dashboard. I need to now use Ember to call those endpoints and then populate Handlebars. We use Handlebars already, just not with Ember, so I want to use Ember for that.
Problem is all of the examples I’m finding include routing and I don’t need routing because the endpoints already exist. So, can anyone help me with an example of this? Imagine you’re consuming some public API you can’t modify and so Ember just needs to consume the endpoint and then plop the data into a Handlebar template. Again, the endpoint already exists so I don’t need to specify a route because it already exists from the back end.
How does Ember know the endpoint to call outside of the content: store.findAll('post') I assume routes to /api/post? How can I get this to touch the endpoint and populate the model on page load? Lastly, I’m used to requiring a Handlebars template and passing data like so:
Thanks, I’m going through that example now. Another question I have, currently we write es6, use Babel to transpile and Webpack to uglify/bundle/etc. When trying these examples in our code base I get errors on
import Ember from 'ember';
Likely because no npm package exists that is called “ember”. Am I able to use my current tech stack and add Ember into it? Do you know of any good examples of this?
