Shared Terminology Yet Different Concepts Between Ember.js and Rails

Developers who are well versed in Ruby on Rails (or other MVC implementations) and start learning Ember.js may find it surprising that, even though there’s shared vocabulary, denoted concepts are sometimes very different.

The first and obvious difference comes from the fact both are web frameworks. Rails facilitates the creation of web apps that offer mainly an HTTP interface to interact with. On the other hand, Ember helps creating web apps that interface directly with humans (through clicks, taps, key presses, etc). They are both web application frameworks, but the former is server side and the latter client side.

A look into their workflows will shed light over the main differences.
