Show notes

Topics covered:

  • Declarative rendering, their new series
  • Steelman versus strawman arguments

Listener questions:

  • I care about lazy loading ember code, like routes. My knowledge is that’s its only possible with ember engines, but I’m not sure. Thanks a lot – @sommer_gerrit on Twitter
  • Podcast about ember-engines might be cool – @iflask on Twitter
  • My question: is it time to pitch PWA instead of native apps for clients wanting a presence on mobile (re: the new Safari release) – @real_ate on Twitter
  • Question for the show -> how might writing glimmer components be different in the coming months as we unlock that as first class (thru the eyes of a traditional ember 2 developer) – @toranb on #topic-embermap from Slack
  • Ember Data can get complicated in a hurry when not using a JSON:API standard API. What are some strategies to work with these kinds of APIs assuming the API cannot be changed? – @localpcguy on #topic-embermap from Slack
