The new guides.emberjs.com
are a cornerstone of the Ember experience, and one of our community's strengths is that anyone
can get involved.
So, it's important to make it easier for everyone to create content or functionality. For this reason, a team of contributors have been working for months to convert the Guides from a Ruby/Middleman app into an Ember app.
Now, to help with content, contributors only need to work with markdown files, and to see how things would look on the website, they run an Ember app!
contains the static site
generator that pulls written content
markdown files. The guides-app produces static HTML using Prember
. The app is currently served through Heroku
who supports Ember in a big way by sponsoring hosting and advice. (Did you know that it takes a ton of back end infrastructure to run a front-end framework project? Other parts of our website rely on support from Fastly
, like the API docs. We're thankful to have so many friends of open source 👨👩👧👦!)
Moving forward, the only part of our site that's not Ember is the website repo
, which includes the home page, the blog, and some other odds and ends. Everything else has already been moved into Ember apps
