    npm install -g ember-cli


    After installation the ember CLI tool will be available to you. It is the entrypoint for all the functionality mentioned above.

    You can call ember <command> --help to find out more about all of the following commands or visit to read the in-depth documentation.

    Create a new project

    ember new my-new-app

    This will create a new folder my-new-app, initialize a Git project in it, add the basic Ember.js project structure and install any necessary NPM and Bower dependencies.

    Create a new addon project

    ember addon my-new-addon

    This is essentially similar to ember new but will generate the structure for an ember-cli addon instead.

    Build the project

    ember build

    This will create a dist folder and run the build pipeline to generate all the output files in it. You can specify --environment=production to build in production mode, which includes code minification and other optimizations.

    Run the development server

    ember serve

    This will launch a development server that will automatically rebuild your project on file changes and serves the built app at http://localhost:4200/.

    Run the test suite

    ember test

    This command will start the Testem runner, which will run all your tests from the tests folder. This command also supports a --server option which will automatically run tests on file changes.

    Generate files

    ember generate route foo

    This will generate a route named foo. route is an example here and can be replaced by any other available blueprint. Blueprints are provided by ember-cli itself and any of you installed addons. Run ember generate --help to see a list of available blueprints in your project and their options.

    Install an ember-cli addon

    ember install some-other-addon

    This will search NPM for a package named some-other-addon, install it and run any additional install steps defined in the addon.



    Start by cloning the Git project to your local hard drive:

    git clone

    Link ember to your development version

    Running the following command will link the global ember utility to your local development version:

    npm link

    Note that the global ember CLI utility will automatically relay to any project-local ember-cli installation. If you want to use your development version there instead run the following command from your Ember.js project folder:

    npm link ember-cli

    Read the official npm-link documentation for more information.

    Run the test suite

    npm test

    will run ESLint and the "fast" subset of the test suite. Run npm run test-all for the full test suite which will currently take quite a few minutes due to heavy IO and network usage.

    ember-cli is using Mocha for its internal tests. If you want to run a specific subset of tests have a look at their documentation.

    Build the documentation

    Use npm run docs to build HTML and JSON documentation with YUIDoc and place it in docs/build/. Please help by improving this documentation.
