Core Team Meeting Minutes - 2014/08/01


Although most of our collaboration takes place on Github, IRC (#emberjs on freenode.net), and our Discourse site the Ember.js Core Team meets privately every Friday at 2pm EST/11am PST through Google Hangout for a weekly discussion of all things Ember.

If you have a topic you'd like to see covered, contact your favorite core team member and let them know!

Attendees

@krisselden, @mixonic @_mmun, @trek, @stefanpenner, @wagenet, @tomdale, @wycats

Revamp the Getting Started Guide

We're starting work to revamp our Getting Started Guide. TodoMVC is just too small of an app to demonstrate enough topics. We were holding off in hopes that there would be further progress on the successor to TodoMVC but this project has stalled.

We're investigating building a Github Issues viewer. Our goals are to better highlight areas where Ember really shines compared to other frameworks: Deeply nested view and data hierarchies, url-driven applications, intuitive query paramater behaviors.

Deprecating global view lookup from templates

As we move towards a world where ES6 syntax and modules become viable we continue to deprecate some "old style" globals lookup. The following uses will all trigger deprecation warnings:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
{{view "App.SomeThing"}}
{{view Oh.ThisToo}}
{{#collection itemViewClass="Some.Wow"}}
{{#collection itemViewClass=Not.Yet}}
{{#each itemView="Ugh.Why"}}
{{#each itemView=Something.Something}}
{{view Ember.Select value=whut}}
