Various troubles from a Ember beginner developer


#1

Saddly we don’t leave in a perfect world, where all tutorials and example is the same or related. I’ve found a long and difficult path to learn Ember in when develop a project with Ember, tutorials are outdate and confuse. I no see future on Ember cause this. I’m try to learn Ember 2, there is no sense wasting time learning the old.

In many tutorials, started with example when a Application preload some datas from a server, and the models are beautiful and works. In my application I need load a screen, after login, before some user interactions. So the user click in a link to a search. The route should be like this:

/query
/query/booking

Well, I need give up this, cause I don’t found a way to do this. Why the components in booking screen are always showed in query screen. So I go on and next step and this I stucked for a few days.

The search field need send a post for 4 input fields. My backend (I don’t have control), expected a post for a search. I try follow the recommendations for Ember-Data, creating models and etc. So until now didn’t any progress.

I concluded if Ember wants survive, need a more easily way to learn, to guides don’t help with a practical and concise example. The Ember develops need blogging more about it, and more about the new versions. To the Ember core, performance need be a prior, in various application I see a delay when something is inputted. Ember load more data than Angular.

So anyone, can correct or help me(I’m still need help), I’m open to learn and I want to contribute for community.

Hey flpms, I hear you and totally agree that learning Ember can be a long and difficult path.

The good news: the core and documentation teams are really taking comments like yours to heart. Ember 2 brings on tremendous improvements. I wish I could somehow transfer this confidence to you :slight_smile:

I will not address your particular issues (regarding routing and components) because I don’t understand it well. I encourage you to post another thread in this forum with a concrete and more detailed explanation of your problem. Make sure the title of the thread describes your exact problem!

What I can refer you to (if you are interested in reading ONLY up-to-date Ember 2 content) is my blog, Ember Igniter. For example a popular post is about 5 essential Ember concepts. There are also several step-to-step guides, covering quite a lot of Ember Data, and recently authentication. Many developers like you starting out with Ember have found it useful. I hope that helps a bit!

@emberigniter I’ve visit your blog daily to learn more, and you has done a great job at there. I made this for the community in general and for people which wrote about ember to talk about very old Ember version.

Continue with your great blog, help me a lot.

@emberigniter - I too am new to Ember and struggle finding coherent, up-to-date documentation and examples. Your work is appreciated. Highly.

I’d recommend Ember CLI 101, Ember Igniter & Ember Screencasts as great starting resources to get familiar with Ember.

I’ve been an ember user for a while now. I frequent this forum, stackoverflow, /r/emberjs and other places for support.

I think the single most critical thing for the docs team to do is bridge the gap between http://ember-cli.com and http://emberjs.com. We cannot continue to have two separate tutorial pages that exist in this weird isolation mode. I know that ember still has a global’s option for those who can’t use ember-cli and they’re trying to thread that needle. But my perception is that upwards of 80% of users are on Ember-CLI. The guides are already showing ES 6 code samples (which is impossible without Babel and buildtools).

Right now new users come to Ember.js and try to get started, but without specific ember-cli instructions they fall completely flat. Ember and ember-cli docs must be folded together, otherwise you’re asking new users to bridge the gap cognitively between the two projects.
