Out-of-the-box FastBoot support in Ember Simple Auth

Ever since FastBoot was first announced at EmberConf 2015 it was clear to us that we wanted to have out-of-the-box support for it in Ember Simple Auth. Our goal was to make sure that Ember Simple Auth did not keep anyone from adopting FastBoot and adopting FastBoot would not result in people having to figure out their own authentication and authorization solutions. Today we're happy to announce the availability of Ember Simple Auth 1.2.0-beta.1, the first release with out-of-the-box support for FastBoot.

Using better element selectors in Ember.js tests

We just released ember-test-selectors, an Ember Addon that enables better element selectors in Ember.js tests. It removes all data attributes starting with data-test- from the application's templates in the production environment so that these attributes can be used to select elements with in acceptance and integration tests without polluting the markup that is delivered to the end user.

Updating to Ember Simple Auth 1.0

With Ember Simple Auth 1.0.0 having been released a few days ago, a lot of people will want to upgrade their applications to it so they can finally make the switch to Ember.js 2.0. While quite a big part of the public API has been changed in 1.0.0, updating an application from Ember Simple Auth 0.8.0 or earlier versions is actually not as hard as it might appear at first glance. This post explains the steps that are necessary to bring an application to 1.0.0.

Rails API Auth

We are happy to announce the first public release of the rails_api_auth gem. rails_api_auth is a lightweight Rails Engine that implements the "Resource Owner Password Credentials Grant" OAuth 2.0 flow as well as Facebook authentication and is built for usage in API projects. If you’re building a client side application with e.g. a browser MVC like Ember.js (where you might be using Ember Simple Auth which works great with rails_api_auth of course), a mobile app or anything else that’s backed by a Rails-based API, rails_api_auth is for you.
