On the Ember Blog: Plain Functions as Helpers ↩︎

Making sure people understand a new feature we shipped which is a big deal.

Assumed audience: Folks interested in what the Ember.js community is up to.

In Ember 4.5, we released a really important and long-awaited feature: the ability to use normal JavaScript functions as helpers. This unlocks a bunch of really neat capabilities Ember users have long wanted, is just generally nicer and easier to use, and fits especially well with the <template> tag feature coming soon. We will eventually rewrite the tutorial and guides entirely to just use this approach, but in the meantime I wanted to make sure we had good coverage of it somewhere else, too, and so: this blog post.
