Cross-Pollinating Communities: We all Win

Cross-Pollinating Communities: We all Win

You may have heard the quote, "Good artists copy, great artists steal."

Ember's origins were inspired by Cocoa. Ember has taken many cues from Rails, the biggest coming in the form of strong framework conventions. In 1.13, Ember's rendering engine was rewritten based on concepts pioneered by React. Instead of writing their own cli from the ground up, Angular has embraced ember-cli.
