Ember has been around since the early days of the frontend renaissance that already started several years ago by now. It's almost a decade old and dates back well before React, Vue, Svelte and all the others. The framework has never been on the forefront of the frontend hype train but quietly enabled teams to ship steadily and sustainably – among them Qonto and CLARK, two of Europe's Top 50 FinTechs in 2020 (more on their success with Ember below).
In this post, I want to make the case for Ember in 2021 and explain why I consider it a beacon of productivity in the middle of a roaring sea of complexity. While everyone is obsessed with change and innovation (often mistaking the former for the latter), Ember allows teams to excel at executing their product vision and focus on shipping instead of getting lost in low-level rabbit holes where little business value is to be found.
