Ember Data Read-Only API Proposal
View gist:4263171


An important feature for Ember Data is providing helpful error messages when your application tries to do something that is forbidden by the data model.

To that end, we would like for the data model to be able to mark certain records, attributes, and relationships as read-only. This ensures that we can provide errors immediately, and not have to wait for a return trip from the adapter.

This also means that the adapter does not need to handle the case where an application developer inadvertently makes changes to a record that it does not conceptually make sense to modify on the client.

Ember Data / Ember Ajax / Ember Fetch proposal

Networking in Ember


Most client-side applications need to fetch data over the network. In the Ember.js ecosystem, many developers use a high-level abstraction, like Ember Data, that standardizes network access via an adapter pattern.

For those who want more low-level control over data fetching, it is

Forwarding Named Blocks in Glimmer

Use Case

A component that "forwards" passed blocks to a child component. For example, imagine we have a component called MiniCard that accepts a named block called header. It is invoked like this:

Ember Component Lifecycle Hooks Survey

Component Lifecycle Hooks Survey

Most Ember developers are familiar with component lifecycle hooks, like didInsertElement, willDestroy, etc.

As we think about future APIs for Glimmer components that improve on lifecycle hooks, we want to make sure that we're providing abstractions that are simple, performant, and ergonomic, while nudging users towards good patterns and away from potential footguns.
