Ember.js (RC1) - Getting an Instance of Controllers and Views
After hanging out on the #emberjs IRC channel for awhile, a friendly user pointed me to the following code snippet.
// controller:NameOfController var myController = window.App.__container__.lookup('controller:Posts'); // view:NameOfView var myView = window.App.__container__.lookup('view:Post');
What Am I Looking For?
If you find yourself having trouble figuring out the string you need to lookup, use the following code to return a dictionary of all objects used in your app. From there, you can easily pop open each object in the console and look for the _debugContainerKey, which is used when looking up the instance of the class.
// Returns all the classes used in your app, look for the _debugContainerKey var classes = window.App.__container__.cache.dict // Grab the object var instantiatedClass = window.App.__container__.lookup('router:main');
