こんにちは Emberistas! 🐹
In this week's issue: watch the Ember.js Documentary 🍿, check out the Ember.js core team panel 📹, there's a big update to the guides 📐, a new RFC to deprecate computed().meta() 🚀, and we have an exclusive interview with Ember contributor Lisa Backer! 🎉
Here are some quick snippets from the film:
“I really hope the best of Ember is ahead because I think front end engineering needs it … needs an example of something that is not trying to tell people that when something goes wrong it’s their own fault. So like something that tells you if you’re a beginner like this is for you.” - Yehuda Katz
A new version of the Ember guides has been deployed, and it contains some exciting surprises. First of all, the
guides-app repositories have become one repository. This makes it so much more convenient to maintain and contribute. It also now uses the Guidemaker technology which means that CLI-guides and the Ember guides are using the same tech.
And now for the big surprise: The newly deployed guides now contains angle bracket invocation syntax. So, if you're looking to use angle bracket invocation syntax in your Ember application, the guides are the place to look for help.
The once useful function for sharing and looking up meta information through a cp, can now be easily substituted by using
WeakMaps - making the deprecation of
computed().meta() possible as proposed in the RFC.
In our 6th edition of the contributor interview series community member Lisa Backer, also known as @eshtadc talks about her work on
ember-service-worker, public speaking, the things that make open-source so valuable and why anyone in the community can be an expert who has important insights to share.
You can read the full interview on the Ember Forum.
