Fixtures not populating ember store


I’m trying to create my first Ember.js app with rails backend. I’m using ember-rails gem to generate all my folder structure and asset files.

At first, i want to use fixtures instead any kind of api requests and that’s my code

window.App = Ember.Application.create(
  rootElement: 'body'
) ()->

App.Store = DS.Store.extend
  adapter: DS.FixtureAdapter


App.Item = DS.Model.extend(
  name:        DS.attr('string')
  description: DS.attr('string')


App.ItemsIndexRoute = Ember.Route.extend
  model: ->


{{#each item in model}}
  {{ }}

App.Item.FIXTURES = [
    id: 1
    name: 'Item 1'
    description: 'Lorem ipsum'

But i’m completely not able to use model object in my template. It’s empty and ember console also states, that there are 0 Item elements in the db. What’s more, i’ve recreated that code using jsbin and it works (which blows my mind):

My setup:

Ember: 1.5.0
Ember data: 1.0.0-beta.7.f87cba88
Handlebars: 1.3.0
jQuery: 1.11.0

Can anyone advice me how can i debug that issue or what am i possibly doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

Did you ever figure this out? I’m having the identical issue on my latest app, using

Ember : 1.5.1 Ember Data : 1.0.0-beta.5 Handlebars : 1.3.0 jQuery : 2.1.1
