ember-intl data loading patterns

At simplabs we ❤️ ember-intl and use it for all our projects where translations or other localizations are needed. ember-intl is based on the native Intl APIs that were introduced in all newer browsers a while ago. Unfortunately some users are still using browsers that don't support them and this blog post will show you our preferred way to load the necessary polyfill and the associated data.

Using ember-freestyle as a component playground

A component playground is an application that you can use to test out and play around with your custom components in isolation from the rest of your project. In the React and Vue ecosystem Storybook is a quite popular project that implements such a component playground as part of your app. In the Ember ecosystem we have the ember-freestyle addon that can be used for this purpose. This blog post will show you how to install ember-freestyle in your app and how to use it to build and test components in isolation.

Using npm libraries in Ember CLI

tl;dr Use npm instead of Bower whenever you can!

With Ember 2.11 we are now using the ember-source module and no longer the ember Bower package. In the upcoming Ember CLI 2.12 release, Bower will also no longer be installed by default and only install lazily when an addon requests it. All this indicates that from now on we should try to use npm packages instead of Bower whenever possible. This blog post will explain how we can do that and what options are available to us.

New features for ember-test-selectors

In March 2016 we have released the first version of ember-test-selectors and today we are proud to present you our next milestone: 0.1.0.

While 0.1.0 does not sound like much has changed, the addon has actually gained a lot of new functionality and should be considered our release candidate for 1.0.0.

This blog post will highlight the major changes in this release, and will give you a short introduction into how we have implemented these new features.
