This is my first post on this forum. I have read your guy's brilliance for close to a year now. My name is TJ and I have been tinkering with Ember for a couple months off an on. I am now at the point where I only care about Ember and giving up on Angular completely. I can get my homemade PHP API and Laravel to work with Angular reasonably well. But I love Ember so much and I want to use it instead of Angular for my API's. I have read different techniques to combine the two and right now the easiest and quickest way to get Ember working with Laravel is by using the app starter kit. Ideally I would like to use Ember-CLI so that opens a whole new set of issues when combining the two. I have a couple build scripts that build ember and place those files into the public/assets folder in Laravel. What I don't get is the rest. I am so confused after this point. Maybe combining both Ember and Laravel inside the same directory is not what I need at all. Maybe I need to build out my API and other things with Laravel and then install Ember CLI on another directory just using the api calls. This method also confuses me because of CORS. How would I get around the CORS issues with Ember? I'm guessing that I need to start my vagrant server for the Laravel API and the start the Ember server to get them to work together. I also need to use --proxy when using ember server So, right now I can work with Ember and Laravel but only with the Ember App Kit which I want to use Ember CLI. Could anyone here please help me to get a method or technique that gets Laravel and Ember CLI working. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
