@StompyNZ I think it can be done with a subview and waitfor I will take a look when I get home.

@StompyNZ
ok thanks for that :)

@StompyNZ I couldn't really test it, i get a lot of API failures, but something like this https://gist.github.com/RickButler/a0a1137e4dea01a2dbef4a37853ceb8f

@StompyNZ
thanks richard, ill test it out in about 3 hours when I get home from work :)
the api server is a game server and very basic webserver that doesnt allow cors so cant make it available for testing remotely

@StompyNZ
@RickButler Thanks heaps, works perfectly :)

@RickButler
@StompyNZ no problem, I have some abstractions that might help with that. I have a property on my base model that gets auto set after fetch returns. Working on putting it on git so you and others can take a look.

@StompyNZ
nice :)
this app im working on is partly to learn ampersandjs because my work wants to switch over to it, but its a huge project so getting a good file structure worked out will be the next step
Richard Butler
@RickButler
@StompyNZ another thing to keep in mind is the ampersand cli generated project has out of date dependencies
Richard Butler
@RickButler
in your project for instance the cli generates ampersand-model in the package.json with 5.0.3, ampersand is on 8.0.1
ampersand-model* is on 8.0.1
I should probably submit a PR to update the CLI...

Hey, I'm trying to find documentation on findWhere but I keep on running into dead links?
Richard Butler
@RickButler
@oakypokey are you referring to findWhere on an ampersand collection? If so that is just a proxy to lodash findWhere.
Lodash where rather
Richard Butler
@RickButler
I'm sorry still wrong lol it uses lodash filter.

Hello. Hope this place is still monitored? I'm new to ampersand and still green in javascript overall, but I'm wondering if I should be using ampersand-rest-collection to create models from a local json file? I currently am, but it doesn't seem to be dropping anything into the model. I also am following along in the HumanJavascript video series and am trying to duplicate, but with local json rather than an external api. Any help is appreciated.

@pnwnelson Same here, I'm new to ampersand.

@pnwnelson The rest collection is intended to be used with an actual API, you can easily run a node json-rest plugin like this one https://github.com/typicode/json-server to simulate such.

@pnwnelson
@samuil4 Thanks for the reply. I'm going to be pulling data from the json file for production so I need a permanent solution - unless I'm misunderstanding. Would using ampersand-collection handle this?

@pnwnelson
As a relative novice in this, I always struggle understanding the terminology to figure out what tool to use for what I'm trying to do. Reading the docs, it sounds as if maybe I should be using &-state instead of &-model, to create a model and a collection for data coming from a local json file. Is this correct? Yet I see others using &-model for use with local json files.

Guys, rudimentary question: how do I add new JS/CSS to the generated code file[s]? (Appname).nonCached.js and .nonCached.css
Richard Butler
@RickButler
@brianvegan We would need to see your project/build process. Are you using a sample project from somewhere, or do you have your code on github?

@brianvegan

Hi Everyone! I am actively using Ampersand in one of my projects :D . Just want to know if somebody is still using it
Kyle Farris
@kylefarris
We do. Not for new projects but we still have several projects in production that are actively developed that use Ampersand.
