Ember Django Adapter

Circle CI

Ember Observer Score

Ember Data is a core Ember.js library that provides a store and ORM for working with your Ember models. Ember Data works with JSON API out of the box, however "Ember Data is designed to be agnostic to the underlying persistence mechanism". To that end, Ember Data encourages the use of adapters to manage communication with various backend APIs.

This adapter enables the use of Django REST Framework as an API backend for Ember Data. The addon is compatible with ember-cli version 0.2.7 and higher, Ember 1.12.1 and higher (including 2.0.0), and Ember Data v1.13.7 and higher (including 2.0.0).
