Ember API Store

Storage adapter for Ember to compatible APIs.


When using ember-cli >= 0.2.3, run the following command from inside your ember-cli project:

  ember install ember-api-store

Installation with ember-cli 0.1.5 - 0.2.3

  ember install:addon ember-api-store

Installation without ember-cli

  npm install --save-dev ember-api-store



The store performs all communication with the API service and maintains a single copy of all the resources that come back from it. This ensures that changes to a resource in one place propagate propertly to other parts of your application that use the same resource.

A property named store is automatically injected into all routes, controllers, and models on initialization.


  • find(type [,id] [,options]): Query API for records of type, optionally with id and other options like filter. Returns a promise.
  • getById(type, id): Get a record from the local cache by type and id. Returns a resource or undefined synchronously.
  • hasRecordFor(type, id): Returns true if a record for type and id exists in cache synchronously.
  • all(type): Returns a "live" array of all the records for [type] in the store. The array will be updated as records are added and removed from the store.
  • findAll(type): Calls find(type) if it hasn't been called before, then returns all(type) to give you back a live list of all the records in one call. Convenient for a model hook.
  • createRecord(data): Create a record given fields data. Returns a Resource. Does not add the record to the store, call resource.save() on the response or \_add() on the store.

More methods, that you shouldn't need often:

  • _add(type, obj): Add a record to the store. This is normally done automatically when reading objects, but you might have created one with createRecord manually want it added without resource.save().
  • _remove(type, obj): Remove a record from the store. This doesn't tell the server about it, so you probably want resource.delete().


  • removeAfterDelete: true: Set to false to disable automatically removing from the store after record.delete(). You might want this if your API has a 2 or more step deleting vs removed vs purged state.


A resource is a model object representing a single resource in the API.


  • .merge(data): Take the values in data and replace the corresponding values in this resource with them. Returns the resource so you can chain calls.
  • .replaceWith(data): Replace all the values in this resource with the ones in newData. Returns the resource so you can chain calls.
  • .clone(): Returns a duplicate of this resource. Changes to the clone will not initially affect the original. If .save() is called on the clone, the response data will be merged into both the clone and original.
  • .hasLink(name): Returns a boolean for whether this resource has a link with the given name or not.
  • .followLink(name [,options]): Retrieves the link with the given name and returns a promise that resolves with the response data.
  • .importLink(name [,options]): Retrieves the link with the given name and assigns the response data as a property with the same name on the resource. Returns a promise that resolves with the resource.
  • .hasAction(name): Returns a boolean for whether this resource has an action with the given name or not.
  • .doAction(name [,data]): Performs the action given by name, optionally sending data and returns a promise that resolves with the response data.
  • .save(): Sends the resource to the API to persist it. On success, adds the resource to the store if it wasn't already in there. Returns a promise that resolves to the resource, and also updates the store record with the response data if it is provided.
  • .delete(): Sends a delete request to the API to remove a resource. On success, the resource is removed from the store if it was in it (unless `store.removeAfterDelete`` is false)
  • .serialize(): Returns a plain JavaScript object representation of the resource.

Static Properties:

  • defaultSortBy: '': Default field to sort by when none was specified
  • `mangleIn(data): A function to edit the data for a resource before it is turned into a model object for purposes of evil
  • `mangleOut(data): A function to edit the data for a resource after it is serialized into a plain object for even more evil.


A collection is a model object representing an array of resources in the API. It is an ArrayProxy that proxies array requests to the data elements of the collection, but collections are themselves resources that may have links and actions themselves that you can use (as a resource, above).

  • .serialize(): Returns a plain JavaScript array representation of the collection.
