Part 1 - Client-side Templating

Download the starter files.

Make an Ajax request to this endpoint and render each restaurant using client-side templating with Handlebars.js.

Part 2 - Ember.js

Create a new Ember app and install ember-cli-mirage.

Build a mock REST API with Mirage for a product resource for the following operations:

This API should have a namespace of api/v1.0.

Use a Mirage factory and create randomized values for the following attributes using faker.js.

Also add an id property as follows:

id() {
  return faker.helpers.slugify(;

This will build a URL slug from name for id. For example, if name is “Incredible Soft Soap”, id would end up being Incredible-Soft-Soap.

Next, build out the functionality for listing all products and viewing more details about a product.

The URLs for each page should be:

The product list page should only show name and price. The product detail page should show name, price, color, and material.

Create an About page with something unique. If you couldn’t figure out anything in Part 2 of the midterm, explain yourself on the About page for partial credit.

Lastly, add a simple header, navigation, and footer that displays on all pages without duplicating code on every route template. The navigation should have links to the home page (the product list page) and the About page.


For part 1, zip up your folder and name it “”.

For part 2, zip up your folder and put it in Google Drive or Dropbox. Give me the proper permissions or make it a public link.

Email me both links.
