Let's not use this opportunity to start another Ember vs Angular argument. Can we instead take a moment to celebrate the fact that we now have two major, stable, fast, capable, testable, tested, supported, documented, git-hubbed single-app javascript frameworks with large, passionate communities.

Let's also recognise and celebrate the hard work put into these projects by the Ember & Angular teams. Ember and Angular are two shining examples of modern open-source software.

We can debate the finer points and minute advantages of each framework later, preferably once we've all tried them both.

Congratulations, Ember 1.0! Roll on, Angular 1.2!




We've got more than two. Facebook's React, and Ractive.js, and the old stalwart Knockout.js to name a few.

Does Angular really qualify here? Technically it's documented, but they're terrible.


lets just be happy about open-source. The magnitude and quality of work being contributed is amazing.


Since when did Backbone not count as a major framework?


Backbone is a library, not a framework.


Backbone is still a major player in the ecosystem, whatever you call it.


It's more like the ORM. And I use it quite nicely when that's what I need. However, I can't compare it to Ember.js, because it can't replace it and other features in Ember.


I didn't say it didn't. In fact I din't mention Backbone at all.

I said, "Let's not use this opportunity to start another Ember vs Angular argument."


Ember and Angular are cars, Backbone are sneakers.

So are you mentioning Angular.js then? If you are going to celebrate Angular 1.2 wait for the Angular 1.2 announcement and post there. Sounds like "I don't want to troll but I will anyway while telling everyone I don't want to".
