In the previous article I covered installing Dragula.js in an Ember project and built a simple wrapper component I could use to test basic Ember integration. This article will extend the simple component to bridge Dragula’s DOM based view of the application with Ember components and models.

Building A Bridge

Let’s start with a recap of the simple...

 

I’ve been doing a lot of work on an internal planning and organization tool for HCW. It’s an Ember application that among other things offers a simple kanban board. As you would expect of any kanban board, the interface is drag and drop heavy: cards can be sorted within their own lanes, cards can be moved between lanes, checklist items on cards can...
