From my point of view the EmberJs is really powerfully, but apply the EmberJs inside partially client side site is super hard (for me)!
I found really nice alternative the Serenade.js. On home page examples of code with is really easy to understand. I feel that I have control over code, I can understand how it work.
Hope it will help :-)
