Use ember with the CLI

Hi there, I am totally new to ember.js and I am working on LInux I just installed node, npm and ember, but…

  1. After a successful installation of ember-cli, the version is still 0.7.2 unless a message saying +ember -cli@3.20.0 after ember installation
  2. Each command I enter which start with ember (such as ember help new) opens up the ember gui named ember.bin in a new window

I need help pls

Thank you

Hi @Ricker_Kuate, how did you install node (and what version of node do you have?)? I generally prefer nvm but it’s not necessary, just makes it easier to swap out node versions if you need to.

And once you installed node I assumed you just did npm install -g ember-cli?

And when you say:

the version is still 0.7.2

What do you mean by “still”? Are you looking at an existing project? One thing to note is that your global ember cli version is important but if you’re in an existing project it will use whatever version is installed in that project (for compatibility reasons). So installing ember-cli globally at a specific version won’t upgrade a project’s version, you’ll have to do that separately.
