I looked at EmberJS yesterday again because 2 leads recently were requesting it. It had been over a year since I looked at it before… or like 3 months before Google started backing Angular. In my business, my tech choice(s) are dictated by my clients and/or hiring firm. From a 30,000ft view, it’s just like Backbone but with built-in integration with and embracement of Handlebars with more helper classes.
“… Once you learn one, you know 80% of the rest.”
Although I prefer Angular, my current and past clients keep requesting Backbone, so it was surprising to hear 2 recently request Ember.
…that and everyone loves Andy Matthews and I was bored yesterday and didn’t want to do taxes.
Anyway, it’s nice to see Ember is still around, and even with the site and documentation improvements, they are still way less intimidating for n00bs than Backbone.
