Are there ember equivalents to Angulars built in filters and directives out the box.
For example formatting display (currency, uppercase, lowercase) or built in directives for filtering lists with a search box?
I switched to Rails hence the interest in using Ember long term rather than Angular.
In the case of light modification of data for display purposes, a helper is the way to go (in particular, check out their example of a fullName helper).
As for the filtering lists, there’s a couple of ways to go. You could encapsulate the entire process in a fairly hefty view that has the search box and the list contained in it. Or you could keep track of the search term on the controller and display a filtered list that is observing the search term.
It sounds like a general tour through the Ember guides would be really productive for you right now.
Thanks for the tip, I was watching Codeschool videos on Ember, quite helpful. And I spent the last 2 days going through the Ember guides, they seem much better than a few months ago.
