The biggest, annual Ember conference is coming up and the registration has just opened! Get your tickets and join over a thousand other Emberistas for amazing talks, trainings, workshops and more in Portland, OR from March 12th - 14th.
A new RFC (Request for Comments) might interest you if you’ve ever used the popular addon ember-wormhole or if you tried to render content outside of the usual HTML flow arbitrarily. The RFC proposes the promotion of the already existent, yet still private-in-element template helper to become part of the public API. This change will allow you to render your components with more flexibility, based on a consistent API via the in-element helper syntax.
If you’re curious, check out the RFC and leave your questions and suggestions in the comment section:
The Ember CLI package has been cleaned of lots of deprecation related code this week, including deprecated install commands and more (1,2, 3, 4). Also a bug for using the --yarn flag together with the ember new command when creating a new application has been fixed. The improvement is now available in the latest Ember CLI 2.17.2 release.
Many thanks to @Turbo87 who worked on these improvements for Ember CLI this week. 🚀
