Ember JSON API Resources

A stand-alone data persistence solution as an addon for Ember.js applications built using Ember CLI. It follows the JSON API 1.0 specification (your anti-bikeshedding weapon for API development).

A thin data layer, a 1:1 solution using the JSON API spec, which does not attempt to solve "all the things".

By considering this equation e = mc2

“Errors = (More Code)2

…The "EJR" addon is a lightweight library that simply focuses on one solid specification, and follows common patterns for data persistence in Ember apps.
