Generated Objects Edit Page


As explained in the routing guide, whenever you define a new route, Ember.js attempts to find corresponding Route, Controller, View, and Template classes named according to naming conventions. If an implementation of any of these objects is not found, appropriate objects will be generated in memory for you.

Generated routes

Given you have the following route:

1
2
3
4
// app/router.js
Router.map(function() {
  this.route('posts');
});

When you navigate to /posts, Ember.js looks for route:posts. If it doesn't find it, it will automatically generate an route:posts for you.

Generated Controllers

If you navigate to route posts, Ember.js looks for a controller called controller:posts. If you did not define it, one will be generated for you.

Generated Views and Templates

A route also expects a view and a template. If you don't define a view, a view will be generated for you.

A generated template is empty. If it's a resource template, the template will simply act as an outlet so that nested routes can be seamlessly inserted. It is equivalent to:

1
{{outlet}}
