We have a pretty large single-page Backbone app that reports data in (near) realtime. We are now developing a new app in Ember, and now are doing some heavy maintenance on the old one. We’ve talked about doing a full rewrite eventually, but as we all know, that is a huge black hole. It would be far better to find a way to gradually evolve this code.
Is there any reason we couldn’t render our Backbone views from the Ember router? I know we’ll have trouble using Ember helpers like linkTo, but I think we could just link directly to # urls for the time-being.
