Is there a good guide available for getting started with Orbit? I'm considering using it in a react/redux app, but looking for a bit of direction on getting up and running. Thanks for any guidance/pointers.

@michaelorionmcmanus I'm trying to wrap up this release (a year in the making) plus some new docs by the end of the weekend. If you can wait until next week to start, it should be a lot easier.

great :)
looking forward to hearing how you end up integrating orbit with react/redux (esp whether redux is still needed)

@dgeb yeah, that's the part I'm curious about. Definitely some overlap with redux.
I'm taking over a project that now connects with a json-api compatible backend and I'm trying to avoid writing a json-api client from scratch
been working with ember-data since it's beginning and appreciate the amount of effort it takes to make api interaction consistent, predictable and flexible

@michaelorionmcmanus orbit should be a good fit for your project - jsonapi-compliance is a very high priority for us, and I think you'll find orbit allows for more flexible querying than ember-data provides currently
