The case for embeddable Ember

In this post I'm proposing some improvements for Ember in an important, but often overlooked use case: embedding Ember components in non-Ember applications. Ember is great for brand new web applications. But what story do we tell for existing apps that are looking to transition to Ember?

Consider a single page application that started in 2016 that uses React and webpack. There's already support for pulling in ES modules and rolling them into the production bundle. However, the team has heard about the many tooling improvements to Ember and wants to experiment shipping a small component in this existing React app. However, because the app uses a client-side router, there needs to be a mechanism to load the Ember app and render into a div without resorting to an iframe.

As Ember apps mature over time, more components and assets are added, which can cause the boot up time to slow down as well - but you can change that! Tools like route-level code splitting with Embroider, precaching with ember-service-worker, automatic lighthouse audits during CI, and more can help ensure your app stays fast! We'll look at debugging tools with an example app, and measure the positive impact of each optimization we talk about.


This is not intended to be a bikeshedding discussion of what performance improvements are best. For instance, most apps won't meaningfully benefit from a 5 KB size reduction overall. The focus is specifically on how to keep your app booting up fast on mobile devices over the life of a project by deferring unnecessary work.

Intended audience will be people already familiar with building Ember apps. To be introduced over the talk:

  • Embroider - route level code splitting
  • Prember - faster first contentful paint / first meaningful paint timings
