#98 Easy Forms

UPDATE: According to the author, this addon is not maintained any more (see comment below).  If you are aware of any good alternatives, please let us know.

One of my least favorite things to do in a web app is create forms, this add-on makes it slightly more enjoyable.  Your form could look like this:

You can have labels:

Or a placeholder:

or specify a type:

Possible values for ‘as’:

  • text – renders a textarea input
  • email
  • password
  • url
  • color
  • tel
  • search
  • hidden
  • checkbox

There is more to this add-on, check out the documentation.

  • I am the author of EasyForm. While I appreciate the attention to one of my libraries I want to advocate for this tip to be removed. Ember Easy Form is not compatible with Ember 1.9+. It is not in an addon. We have no immediate plans for changing this. The community has moved on to other solutions. Anyone attempting to implement Ember Easy Form today is going to have a bad time.

    I think it would be best for this tip to be taken down, please.

    • Thanks for the feedback – I wasn’t aware. You might want to add a comment at the top of the README to let people know that.

      I will edit the ticket and make it obvious that this addon is not maintained any more.

      Do you recommend an alternative?

      PS: I have used the forms in ember-paper but not exactly the same as your addon.

      • Well, I suspect you did not actually try to run the library. It appears all you did was copy/paste from the README. Otherwise this would have been clear to you.

        • You are right, I did not run it while writing the tip because I used your addon in the past and just assumed it is still working – bad assumption on my part. I will be more careful in the future and test with current version of ember before writing a tip.

          I appreciate the heads up.
