This week you can read about the 🦄 magical gifts 🎁 of DecEmber ❄ and the decorators RFC moving into FCP 🎉! Check out a video on the State of Ember today 📺 and read our exclusive interview with community contributor @hakilebara 🧠!
@knownasilya published a video that summarizes the State of Ember today. In his video, he highlights key themes that represent where Ember is at today for people who are not following too closely to developments or those who are new to Ember.
Ember Editions represents how Ember gets packaged to provide a coherent story. Editions provide a way to market new features to the community since Ember historically has used major releases to deprecate API.
Ember Octane is a new edition that brings a good amount of features from new layout for projects, Glimmer components, Angle bracket component syntax, updates to the Guides to show the new programming model, a new website, a shift to move to decorators and more! Some of these have already landed and can be used today, while others are still in progress. Check out what’s coming in the Octane tracking issue.
Ember CLI Create is a tool that - similar to ember new - allows to create Ember apps and with an option to create Octane apps, too! However since not everything about Octane has been settled, such as module unification, you may need to refactor this code later on.
This week we'd like to highlight the work of community member Frédéric Soumaré, also known as @hakilebara. In an exclusive interview with the Ember Times he talks about his learnings as both an Ember meetup organizer and contributor to Ember learning projects and why showing up is key.
