I stumbled across Ember yesterday and then spent 4-5hrs reading up about it, watching YouTube videos etc and it certainly grabbed my interest. However, I haven’t taken the plunge just yet other than a little tinkering as I had some concerns/queries.
Firstly front and center on this forum is the thread about a few people leaving and equally a few other not surprised by this, which is a little worrying.
Documentation/Tutorials seem to be wildly out of date, primarily I can see and accept this is due to Embers rapid development and API changes but surly there should be some constantly updated docs and walk throughs to go with that?
EmberData took me an age to find and download the js file and even now I’m not sure if I got the right file, information about it is very vague.
Finally, this is the main reason holding me back as the other points above can be worked around, it seems that Ember is on the brink of a new version as well as EmberData and HTMLbars en route. As I have said I’ve had a tinker but before diving in to develop something serious I don’t want to find that I have to go back and recode 60% of it to work with the latest updates when they are released, is that what is going to happen?
One a final note, the CLI, I don’t like using CLI’s, do you HAVE to use it? It seems the examples using the CLI have vastly more folders created than those that have simply added the js and html files to a web root, like the starter kit for example, are you missing out on something if you don’t use the CLI?
