Getting started with Ember is easy. Ember projects are created and managed through our command line build tool Ember CLI. This tool provides:
Ember requires Node.js 0.12 or higher and npm 2.7 or higher. If you're not sure whether you have Node.js or the right version, run this on your command line:
node --version npm --version
If you get a "command not found" error or an outdated version for Node:
brew install nodeto install Node.js.
If you get an outdated version of npm, run
npm install -g npm.
Ember requires Git to manage many of its dependencies. Git comes with Mac OS X and most Linux distributions. Windows users can download and run this Git installer.
On Mac and Linux, you can improve file watching performance by installing Watchman.
You can run your tests from the command line with PhantomJS, without the need for a browser to be open. Consult the PhantomJS download instructions.
Install Ember using npm:
npm install -g ember-cli
