The Ember Times - Issue No. 187

👋 Emberistas! 🐹

Release: ember-engines-router-service, ember-scroll-modifier and ember-user-activity updates, and Coding with the Dead on Twitch.


⚙️ Release: ember-engines-router-service

Michael Villander (@villander) released the ember-engines-router-service addon which provides the Router service for ember-engines.

The addon gives you access to the RouterService API inside each engine. This allows you to inject the router service as usual to your component within an engine and use APIs such as transitionTo and even transitionToExternal which help link externalRoutes together.

import Component from '@glimmer/component';
import { inject as service } from '@ember/service';
import { action } from @ember/object’;

export default class SomeComponent extends Component {
  @service router;

  @action
  transitionToHome() {
    this.router.transitionToExternal('other.route');
  }

  @action
  transitionToAdmin() {
    this.router.transitionTo('admin.route');
  }
}

🚀 Ember-scroll-modifier and ember-user-activity updates

Jordan Hawker (@elwayman02) announced updates to two of his add-ons.

ember-scroll-modifiers got a minor update to add an amazing test helper to make it easier to test usage of the scroll-into-view modifier in your code.

ember-user-activity got a major update, with the release over version 6.0.0. This version drops support for Ember 3.16 and IE11. Not only does it drop support, but it enables the use in Ember 4.0 🥳!


📺 Coding with the Dead on Twitch

Studio Remote: Coding with the Dead is a Twitch series from Columbia University Libraries. Moacir P. de Sá Pereira (@muziejus) is your host, live streaming coding in Ember! In the most recent episode, Moacir works on wandertext, an open source app to create and share semantically rich geospatial datasets. The app is currently under heavy development! It's neat that viewers can follow along with the code, project management via GitHub issues, debugging, spelunking through addons, and more!

Moacir is typically scheduled for Tuesday afternoons at 3pm ET on Twitch. Follow CULStudio on Twitch and check out the schedule to tune in live or async!
