I’ve been admiring mean.io and was wondering if anyone has tried to recreate this for Ember?
I’m using MEEN but I separate the client from the server. Only real catch is that you have to change your adapter to use ‘_id’ as a primary key (mongo uses underscores) so that Ember can serialize models properly, but that’s mostly it.
I’ve been talking to a few people about creating something similar. If you decide to do this, then I can bring my recruits on board.
I would love to get it going but I don’t know the first thing about node, so I would be a terrible lead on this project. I’m happy to help you guys out though where I can.
I would want to build it on top of EAK, but I have a feeling that it will change when Broccoli is ready. I’m probably going to hold off for a bit.
I this this would be cool. I may hack around this idea in my free time.
Hmm, maybe I should add my project sample to github so people can see how I use nodeJS, MongoDB with EmberJS.
That would be extremely useful and I think would also make it so much easier for new developers to get started quickly.
Despite a different name, this is what I essentially built - MEAN stack for Ember: https://github.com/sahat/ember-sass-express-starter
It’s not the same project 1:1, but architecture-wise it is MongoDB-Express-Ember-Node. If there is any interest I could make it a clone of MEAN stack, replacing Angular with Ember.
I have used ember-tools. Ember Tools is not perfect, but I find it a lot simpler than EAK.
