Current status: Counter Culture coffee and Videri Chocolate 70% dark chocolate and Ember.js for Olo. This is a good Tuesday afternoon.
I just had one of thos beautiful moments when I realized I’d written a beautifully generic component I could reuse throughout the app, and it made me so happy.
I still love EmberJS—but if I have one complaint, it’s that it’s slightly too heavy on convention-based magic. I want it to be a little more explicit, so that I can have a little more insight into what it’s going. Yes, even if that means a little more boilerplate. Explicit is better than implicit.
Pro tip for tracking down oddities with Ember.js during testing:
ember test --serve --filter '<some pattern>' is great. E.g.
ember t -s --filter 'Unit' for just unit tests.
