πŸ‘‹ Emberistas! 🐹

Beta release of ember-template-lint v3, Prettier for .hbs, learn more Ember.js in 2021, new Ember-related podcasts, Pro Ember Data book, and the EmberConf community spotlight!


Beta release of ember-template-lint v3 βœ…

ember-template-lint which is a linter for template files in Ember has released a beta version of 3.0.0. Thanks to Steve Calvert (@scalvert) and Rob Jackson (@rwjblue), this release will include the TODO feature which will help teams adopt the latest version of ember-template-lint and immediately apply linting rules to new code while allowing time to resolve existing issues.

As part of the 3.0.0 beta release, a lot of rules have also been turned on in the default recommended config. This version will also promote the octane config into the default recommended config.

Check out the full plan for the 3.0.0 release on GitHub and the related blog post.


Prettier for .hbs πŸ˜€

Prettier is coming to an Ember .hbs file near you! Prettier is a popular opinionated code formatter. New Ember projects get Prettier out of the box for .js files, and existing projects can adopt Prettier with ember-cli-update.

Check out Jeldrik Hanschke (@jelhan)'s post Format Glimmer templates with Prettier and tweet thread to learn how to configure Prettier for Ember .hbs files, with specific tips to Prettier .hbs on save in VS Code. Note: Prettier for Glimmer templates does not (yet) respect meaningful whitespaces, which will be problematic if your application is not internationalized (i18n'd). Give it a try in your app to see if there are any gotchas.

There is a PR from Cyrille David (@dcyriller) to Move Handlebars support out of alpha to release on Prettier as well.

New Ember-related podcasts πŸŽ™

There are a few new interesting podcasts on the block that either were recently released or will be released soon that will cover Ember-related, and other, subjects:


Pro Ember Data book πŸ“–

David Tang (@skaterdav85) has recently published a new book about Ember Data πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯! If you were a fan of David's previous book, Ember Data in the Wild, you'll love the new book, Pro Ember Data!

Pro Ember Data covers a variety of topics that come up when working with Ember Data, including everything from adapters and serializers to polymorphic relationships and Pro Ember Data will teach you how to adapt Ember Data to fit your custom API.

If you've been looking to deepen your knowledge about Ember Data, definitely consider getting yourself a copy.

Bonus! David has also recently released a blog post on how to make modal's more accessible.


EmberConf community spotlight πŸ™Œ

Coronavirus has robbed us of lots of things, and in the conference area, one of the things we all miss most is the Hallway Track. The random interactions we'd have meeting strangers and old friends in between sessions, on the lunch lines, at after parties, etc.

We'll recapture some of this online, but nothing really replaces the feels of seeing someone else smile and hearing them tell their story. So let's get a mini version! We're looking for short (30 second to 2Β½ minute) videos from community members, basically just saying hello. Submit your videos here, and they'll be curated by emcee Julia Donaldson (@donaldsonjulia).
