  1. Plain operate as helpers

1. Plain capabilities as helpers

Now you can use plain capabilities as helpers in your part templates. This helps make the connection between Ember part templates and their JavaScript class extra intuitive.

For instance, right here we create a way double and use it immediately in a template:

// my-component.js

import Element from '@glimmer/part';

export default class MyComponent extends Element {
  double = num => num * 2;
// my-component.hbs

{{this.double 2}}

<SomeComponent @foo={{this.double 2}} />

That method that your exams match precisely what the app does at runtime.

Nonetheless, making this work relies on Ember offering all the required hooks for check helpers to make use of, and there was one important lacking public API.
You can look forward to all of the check waiters to complete with settled, however there was no public approach to look forward to simply rendering to complete.
For instance, you may need to look forward to rendering to complete however not for an Ember Knowledge save operation to complete, as a part of testing a loading display screen.

Ember 4.5 introduces a brand new operate, renderSettled, as a public method for check helpers to work together with the rendering part of the applying.
renderSettled returns returns a promise which fulfills as quickly as rendering has accomplished.
It may be utilized in any rendering or software check.
(It additionally works in different exams the place you arrange the rendering hooks manually, however that is uncommon!)

import { renderSettled } from '@ember/renderer';

An latest launch of @ember/test-helpers, v2.8.0, takes benefit of this to offer a brand new await rerender() helper.
For extra particulars, and the way this matches into enhancements to Ember’s testing story, see RFC 785.
