The Ember Blog
has a new look and a new codebase! The Ember Blog was started 8 years ago, in 2012. For many years, it was a custom Ruby app that was mainly used for release blog posts. Today, the blog is the home for The Ember Times, release announcements, guest-written learning articles, and more, so a group of dedicated contributors set out to make some improvements. The blog is now an Ember app, and under the hood, it uses the same tech that powers the Ember Guides, Empress
. Empress tools help turn markdown into HTML within an Ember app, meaning that articles are quick to write using Markdown, and contributors can use all the great tools that Ember has to offer.
Did you spot any issues? Want to help build future features? You can find the main repository at ember-learn/ember-blog
on GitHub. Most styles and components come from the shared component library that all Ember's public sites use, ember-styleguide
. The empress-blog-ember-template
has a lot of the layout logic that is specific to this blog, and empress-blog
handles the general application code for routing and data requests for blogs in general.
