(better) Authentication in ember.js

Update:I released an Ember.js plugin that makes it very easy to implement an authentication system as described in this post: Ember.SimpleAuth.

When we started our first ember.js project in June 2013, one of the first things we implemented was authentication. Now, almost 2 months later, it has become clear that our initial approach was not really the best and had some shortcomings. So I implemented a better authentication (mostly based on the embercasts on authentication).

Authentication in ember.js

Update:I released an Ember.js plugin that makes it very easy to implement an authentication system as described in this post: Ember.SimpleAuth.

Update: After I wrote this I found out that it’s actually not the best approach to implement authentication in Ember.js… There are some things missing and some other things can be done in a much simpler way. I wrote a summary of the (better) authentication mechanism we moved to.

I’m using the latest (as of mid June 2013) ember/ember-data/handlebars code directly from the respective github repositories in this example.
