crafting (and) JavaScript

At this point in the EmberJS Framework Basics Part 2 video the author explains how you can make (computed) properties out of 'normal' methods by using what the ember.js Ember.Object offers. It starts out with friend.age(), which returns what you expect. The author wants to write this as a property (as one accesses it in ember!) like this friend.get('age'). How is that done? Well, ember extends the native prototype of Function, so you can write this inside an ember object definition age: function (){}.property().

The new dojo? I started with dojo about 10 years ago, or so. Now I see reapp which seems to be the same as dojo, lots of widgets, just around react and transferred 10 years ahead and to mobile.
Good stuff? Or not?

I read it first in my personal trending twitter search, then I saw it on hacker news and I pulled the repo and being intrigued by the minimal size, compared to react and polymer I thought I try out the demo, didn't work. So I looked a the code, very opinionated. My conclusion after having spent about just 1h on it I summed up in this tweet.

Lately they don't turn out so good, or is it my blurred vision?
