Ember with some full-stack fun


Hey everyone,

I was wondering if there is some kind of pre-packaged project out there that helps you get up and running with a backend to support your Ember project. Something like express + mongoDB + passport.

I checked out Meteor.js and really liked the the backend is so simple, but the front-end doesn’t even come close to Ember’s capabilities.

So… do you know of any awesome open-source projects that have a full-stack with Ember on the front end?



i’m actually making that, but have some work to do:


Cool, good luck! Looking forward to seeing this in action :slight_smile:


it’s now in a working state, consider this version 0.1 :slight_smile:


Thanks, cool work!

I tried using it and I am getting some errors related to mongo… any ideas?

Looks to me like you’re not actually runing Mongo.


this boiler has now been udpated and is a lot more finished


Thanks @ulisesrmzroche, I was in fact not running mongo, I thought grunt would take care of that… Playing around with the actual product now…

Really awesome @mgenev !


Thank you. You can watch the project and pick up the improvements as I release them. I generally merge them from other projects.
