Exploring ember-data

Ember-data was a big struggle when I first started to learn EmberJs. Let's explore ember-data through some living and breathing examples using JsonStub and ember-data's RESTAdapter.

Get some records

Usually, the first thing we need to be able to do is retrieve a list of records. Let's get a list of project models that makes use of every attribute type ember-data has to offer. Click on the Projects link below to go to the projects route to get the models. You can then click on a project to visit the project.

Here's what the json being returned looks like. Pretty straight-forward stuff.

    "projects": [
            "id": 1,
            "title": "Develop Awesome Feature",
            "participantCount": 5,
            "created": "2014-11-12T15:30:00",
            "public": true
            "id": 2,
            "title": "Squash Annoying Bug",
            "participantCount": 2,
            "created": "2014-11-15T08:45:00",
            "public": false
Tip! The bins too small? Just click on the JS Bin link in the top left of a bin to open it up in a new tab. Once you've done that, you can see the *actual* http requests being made by opening your browser's developer console.
