The Ember Times - Issue No. 56

Ia orana Emberistas! 🐹

Read either on the Ember blog or in our e-mail newsletter what has been going on in Emberland this week.

Learn more about lazily loaded dependencies with ember-auto-import ✨, the latest update of Ember in TodoMVC, the obligatory "Hello World" example for JavaScript libraries 📝, and the latest Ember 3.3 release ⬆️. Be sure to also join us on a tour 🚌 through recent RFCs (Request for Comments) proposing features that will land in an Ember app near you soon! 🚀

Got Dependencies? 📦

We’ve previously highlighted the great ember-auto-import by the wizardly Edward Faulkner🌟 as a way to import npm packages into your Ember app. With the latest update, it got way cooler.

As he demonstrates in this nice screencast, with v1.2.0 you can now lazy load dependencies via import()! The dynamic import() will load the dependency as well as all its recursive dependencies via a separate JavaScript file at runtime. That’s really awesome.

To get started, watch the screencast or dive into the documentation.

TodoMVC Ember.js Update ✨

Last week, @mixonic was looking for a helping hand to contribute to the TodoMVC Ember.js update. The PR is now merged and the bump to Ember 3.2 was a success. A big thank you from the community to @zoltan-nz and everyone involved.

TodoMVC helps you decide what MV* framework to use for your projects by providing the classic todo app built in a number of different frameworks and therefore exposing each frameworks' capabilities.

We all know which one is our favorite…🐹, so why not stop by and see it in action at, or maybe become a contributor yourself.

Have fun with the "Speed-dating of MV" frameworks"!

On the Heels of 3.2: Ember 3.3 Released 🎉

Release Bust Tomster

Although you might remember a not too far away, previous 3.2 release, this week the latest 3.3 releases of Ember.js, Ember CLI and Ember Data have been published. This will guarantee that the publishing of Ember.js in particular stays in sync with the planned schedule of the overall release cycle.

The new minor release of Ember.js includes several new deprecations that you shouldn't miss to make your Ember app ready for the future! ⏰ Read more about these and other details of the 3.3 release in the official release blog post.
