The sprockets template for Ember Handlebars.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'ember-handlebars-template'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install ember-handlebars-template


# Sprockets 2.x way
Sprockets.register_engine '.hbs', Ember::Handlebars::Template # or other extension which you like.

# Sprockets 3.x/4.x way
Sprockets.register_mime_type 'text/x-handlebars', extensions: ['.hbs'] # or other extension which you like.
Sprockets.register_transformer 'text/x-handlebars', 'application/javascript', Ember::Handlebars::Template

It can also compile "raw" templates – pure Handlebars templates, independent of Ember. They need to have a suffix .raw.hbs (the last extension depends on what was registered with register_engine).


You can overwrite config like this:

Ember::Handlebars::Template.configure do |config|
  config.precompile = true

  # Or any of the options below.
