Rendering a Template Edit Page


One job of a route handler is rendering the appropriate template to the screen.

By default, a route handler will render the template with the same name as the route. Take this router:

app/router.js
1
2
3
4
5
Router.map(function() {
  this.route('posts', function() {
    this.route('new');
  });
});

Here, the posts route will render the posts.hbs template, and the posts.new route will render posts/new.hbs.

Each template will be rendered into the {{outlet}} of its parent route's template. For example, the posts.new route will render its template into the post.hbs's {{outlet}}, and the posts route will render its template into the application.hbs's {{outlet}}.

If you want to render a template other than the default one, implement the renderTemplate hook:

app/routes/posts.js
1
2
3
4
5
export default Ember.Route.extend({
  renderTemplate() {
    this.render('favoritePosts');
  }
});
