This concept of simply conveying information was not enough, though. Interactivity and visible data changes were needed if web applications would take off. Luckily, today, with frameworks such as Ember, that has been made possible. Users can interact with and get more accurate feedback while using web applications. Users are aware of important factors such as whether or not they are logged in, whether feedback or a message has been sent, delivered and even opened by a recipient, whether an order has been placed, etc. Web applications are also robust, having the ability to retain their state for hours without the need to reload. These advantages are just a tip of the iceberg for users. In Ember, these stateful web applications are known as ambitious applications.
Ember continues to grow in popularity every day, with many developing companies having taken it up as a core structure in their applications. Here are some of the widely-known applications which use Ember.
Discourse is one of the most used web applications for online forum discussion today. Being an open-source software, the forum has been able to expand over the years to incorporate many features that modern web applications have today, making it an ambitious web application itself. Discourse features drag and drop capabilities, one-boxing, live updates, infinite scrolling and expandable links, all of which make it an interactive environment for users to not only utilize, but also to enjoy. An important aspect of Discourse is that because it is open source, users have the option to self-host on their servers which may be a way to cut hosting costs if you have a reliable server system in place.
