A top-to-bottom walkthrough of Ember is provided at http://emberjs.com/. I’ve read through that page a couple times, yet I learn best by examining working code. In this series of posts, I perform an examination and walkthrough of an Ember demo app.
Install the demo app
Using ruby 1.9, the steps below will create the Todos app locally.
# get the source git clone git://github.com/emberjs/todos.git cd todos # install dependencies bundle # assemble the app bundle exec rakep build # run preview server bundle exec rakep server
Fire up your browser, steer it to http://localhost:9292/, and you should see this:
Go ahead and play around with it. Learn how it works. I’ll wait here. When you’ve had your fill of creating and completing Todos, come back and in the next post, we’ll take dive into the code behind it as a way to introduce ourselves to Ember.
