What is the recommended approach integrating ember into Usercake CMS?

To be more specific, I am using usercake and I am having a hard time thinking about all the data that comes from the php server and how should it be transferred to be fitted with ember.

For the record, usercake does not return json objects and it will be a nightmare to convert it to one that does.

You can read about it on their website.

Can someone suggest a nice way of integrating these two excellent platforms?

An example for a simple use case would be great if you have a bit of knowledge in usercake.
