What's the simplest way to use Ember.js for just one part of a Rails application?

I would like to create a Rails application with a full set of admins, authentication, authorization, etc., which is pure Rails, but I would like there to be one part of the application that is "live" and where the view is bound to data, and I would like to use Ember for that.

For example, I have a model Company

that has_many Parties

and Party has_many Guests

. I would like to User

be able to log in, go to the page Company

they have access to and click on the link to Company/:id/Party/:id/live

, which will be a page with an image of an Ember.js app that offers details of everyone Guests

in the batch. It will query the database every X seconds, and the Ember.js app will automatically reflect the updated data (for example, one section of the page only displays Guests where Guest.status == in_attendance

or something like that).

So my question is, is there a standardized or proven way to include Ember in part of a Rails application in this way?

To implement an Ember app, you must do two things:

  • Change the root element from body

    to something else.
  • Disable url management

Code examples:

App = Ember.Application.create({
  rootElement: '#app'

App.Router = Ember.Router.extend({
  location: 'none'


I took this information from Ember Guides: Application Implementation
