New Ember Projects

#programming #frontend #ember.js

Some default steps to follow when I start a new Ember app. Most of this is taken from Sergio Arbeo's post on the Dockyard blog, but this is a bit more streamlined and suited to my usage:

  1. Remove unnecessary packages:

    npm uninstall --save-dev \
    ember-welcome-page \
    ember-data \
    ember-cli-eslint \
  2. Add lower level packages:

    npm i --save-dev \
    ember-template-lint \
    eslint \
    prettier \
    eslint-plugin-prettier \
    eslint-config-prettier \
    husky \
    lint-staged \
  3. Add configs to package.json:

    ...<other stuff>...
    "prettier": {
    "printWidth": 100,
    "singleQuote": true,
    "useTabs": false
    "husky": {
    "hooks": {
    "pre-commit": "lint-staged"
    "lint-staged": {
    "*.js": ["eslint —fix"],
    "*.hbs": ["ember-template-lint"]
  4. Remove render from application.hbs

  5. Update .eslintrc to use the prettier plugin and extend from its rules

  6. Update .eslintrc to use plugin:ember/octane instead of plugin:ember/recommended.
