Getting started with Ember.js is easy. Ember.js projects are created and managed through our command line build tool ember-cli. The command line tool brings:
- Modern application asset management (including combining, minifying, and versioning).
- Built-in generators to help you create components, routes, and more.
- A conventional project layout so approaching another developer's Ember.js applications is easy.
- A complete testing framework.
- Access to a growing ecosystem of Ember Addons.
Ember.js installs through the npm. Install the Ember.js
build tools with
npm install -g ember-cli
Testing your installation
When installation completes, test your install to ensure it worked by generating a new project:
ember new my-app
This will create a new
my-app directory and generate an application structure for you.
Once the generation process finishes, verify that you can run the newly created application:
cd my-app ember server
http://localhost:4200 to see your new app in action.
Got Node, npm, and Git?
ember-cli requires Node.js 0.12 or higher, npm 2.7 or higher, and Git.
Node Package Manager (npm) comes bundled with node.js. If you're not sure if you have node.js installed, try running the following command in your terminal:
If you have node installed you'll see a message like
0.12.x in your terminal.
If you don't have node 0.12 or higher installed:
- Windows or Mac users can download and run the installer.
- Linux users should read through this guide by Joyent for install instructions.
Once you've got node.js installed, run the
node --version command again to verify your install.
Git comes with Mac OS X and most Linux distributions. Windows users can download and run the installer.
