I just spent half an hour on the Quickstart of Ember. It felt very similar to Rails, and I’m not complaining at all. I actually found it quite pleasing after trudging through Angular 2 RC4 just a couple of weeks ago. Granted, I have barely scratched the surface of Ember whereas the Angular Tour of Heroes was quite detailed.
One of the things I’m really excited about with Angular 2 is both NativeScript and React Native. I can use the two renderers to deliver a performant mobile app without necessarily starting from scratch.
I tried to find out what the ‘Ionic-Cordova’ equivalent would be in Ember, but it seems it’s just that - Cordova/PhoneGap… which uses a WebView. I am considering where the future of Ember lies given nothing (in my past hour of reading, at least) seems to come close to what React Native and NativeScript promise for React and Angular 2, although in particular, Angular 2.
My question is: is there anything that I can use with an Ember app that would give me native apps on iOS and Android (especially Material Design – which Angular 2 will naturally have a library for)? I’m not itchy about one-codebase-to-serve-all; I’m infact quite happy with learn-once-write-everywhere.
