    Ember Freestyle is an Ember addon that allows you to quickly create a component explorer for your Ember app.


    This README provides a lightweight overview of Ember Freestyle to get you going. More complete documentation can be found at https://chrislopresto.github.io/ember-freestyle

    Live Demo

    To see Ember Freestyle in action, visit https://chrislopresto.github.io/ember-freestyle/#/acceptance

    Compatibility & support


    • For Ember versions >= 2.4, use the latest published version
    • For Ember versions 1.13.0 through < 2.4, use ember-freestyle 0.3.0


    Ember Freestyle support is only provided for the 2 latest Ember versions


    This installation process is opinionated in order to get you going quickly.

    1. ember install ember-freestyle

      This will do the following:

      • Install the ember-freestyle addon itself
      • Add a freestyle template in your app
      • Add a freestyle controller in your app

      Note: Ember CLI versions < 0.2.3 should use ember install:addon instead of ember install

    2. Add this.route('freestyle'); to your router.js file

    3. Navigate to /freestyle. You should now see something like:

    All of the generated output is optional. If you don't want a freestyle route, for example, feel free to get rid of it in and add a freestyle-guide somewhere else in your app.

    You can use the freestyle-guide component anywhere you'd like in your app. You can organize your components into multiple Freestyle guides if you want to. You can even use the constituent components like freestyle-usage on their own.

    Problems? No problem.

    Hopefully the installation instructions got you off to a smooth, seamless start. If you have any problems, feel free to chat with us in the Ember Community Discord or open an issue. As always, PRs are welcome!

    Removing Ember Freestyle from Your Production Payload

    We recommend blacklisting Ember Freestyle for production builds using Ember CLI's addon blacklist feature.

    var environment = process.env.EMBER_ENV;
    var pluginsToBlacklist = environment === 'production' ? ['ember-freestyle'] : [];
    module.exports = function(defaults) {
      var app = new EmberApp(defaults, {
        addons: {
          blacklist: pluginsToBlacklist

    Using Ember Freestyle Within an Addon

    Dependency Configuration

    You should include Ember Freestyle as a devDependency so that apps using your addon will not include Ember Freestyle CSS and JavaScript in their production payloads.

    Code Snippets

    You will need to tell the build where to search for code snippets as follows:

    var app = new EmberAddon(defaults, {
      // ...
      freestyle: {
        snippetSearchPaths: ['addon', 'tests/dummy/app']


    • npm run lint:js
    • npm run lint:js -- --fix

    Running tests

    • ember test – Runs the test suite on the current Ember version
    • ember test --server – Runs the test suite in "watch mode"
    • ember try:each – Runs the test suite against multiple Ember versions

    Running the dummy application
