How does one configure an Ember project to use the LTS channel?


I have a project that I would prefer to have stay on the LTS channel, and I’m trying to determine the best way to go about doing so. Is there a way to configure ember or npm to stick with the LTS channel?

Ideally, I’d like to be able to run ember update and have it update everything relative to the latest LTS release. Is this possible?


I don’t believe that it tracks which versions are LTS, so I think you’ll have to do it manually every time a new LTS is released. However, I think if it could do something like ember update --to lts that could be a handy feature! You might want to submit an issue with ember-cli-update or get in touch with @kellyselden.


What I have been doing, is using ember update --to ~3.4.0 and so far that appears to handle what I need (at least until LTS moves on to a new branch).


using ember update does not seem to be the best solution for configuring Ember to use the LTS channel.

Does anyone have a tutorial or documentation for using the LTS channel?
