Ember jQuery Mobile

Build Status Dependency Status devDependency Status

This addon appears as a solution for working with jQuery Mobile on an Ember CLI application (Ember.js 2.x)

The addon is actually working with:

  • Ember 2.2.0
  • jQuery Mobile 1.4.5

The basis of this addon is to wrap each one of the jQuery Mobile widgets in an Ember.js component.

These components can be used on any handlebars template as you normally do.

To see actual component list, please go to implemented components

Please note this is an Ember CLI addon not an standalone Ember.js app. Here, you can see a working example

More components will be implemented, if you want to help with this please see contributing

For more info about how to use these handlebars components please check the wiki pages Not done yet see the working example instead

For users


Please make sure that you have Ember CLI installed

If not done yet, create a new project

ember new <app-name>

Then you can install the addon

ember install ember-jquery-mobile

NOTE: There's actually a jQuery dependency incoherency between Ember.Js and jQuery Mobile, you can execute `bower install --force-latest as for now jQuery 2.1.x is working fine with both (this will remove old browsers support1)

Now you can start adding jQuery Mobile components to your handlebars templates2

For developers


  • git clone this repository
  • npm install
  • bower install --force-latest


Running Tests

  • ember test
  • ember test --server
