Stoking the embers

29th May, 2013

After first reading about Ember I’ve been looking for a little project to build to try it out. The typical go to app people build when experimenting is a “To Do” list, so to mix things up a little I thought I’d build a “To don’t” list.

One of my aims was to integrate a rails backend to the system as that combination is something I am hoping to achieve on another project I’m currently working on. Using the rails-api gem along with some other bits ‘n pieces was a bit testing, but I did find a great walkthrough that helped me out massively.

You can find the code on github and see a working demo over on heroku at – It’s pretty simple and I’ve not spent much time thinking about the front end, but the basic CRUD functionality is there.
