I've been thinking about how to proceed with replacing the #mootools code in #Anahita for awhile. The idea of using #Emberjs crossed my mind a few times so I sat down today and threw together a quick example. It's not much, but you can check out a demo here (click on People in the menu) and the source code here.
Anahita already has some great APIs to handle this sort of thing. I just threw together the people example as a way to get started. Its definitely interesting and a fun side project, but I think #backbone is still a better way to go.
For those don't understand the name, Anahita + Ember = a girl on fire, Katniss Everdeen; from the Hunger Games trilogy. Yes, I'm a nerd.
