I am also very excited to see how Glimmer will disrupt the web framework landscape after attending EmberConf.
The Ember core teams shift in mindset to take there mature, battle-tested solution and move it towards a lightweight, modular set of building blocks is an extremely enticing proposition.
I believe the key to Glimmer’s success right now relies on two things:
1. The current addon ecosystem becoming compatible with Glimmer, through the use of Ember-cli.
2. The ember router becoming compatible with Glimmer. No matter the size or nature of a project, some form of URL state manipulation is always desired, and having a conventional/Ember-compat way of doing this is essential.
If team team behind Glimmer can nail these two things, I’m very excited to see what the futures hold.
