A couple of months ago I wrote a post about store.find ( Understading Ember-Data Store#find), in that post I covered the different scenarios to use it and how it would behave depending on the parameters.

Turns out that post will become useless soon thanks to the following PR on Ember-Data https://github.com/emberjs/data/pull/2728.

The gist of it is:

  1. If we want to fetch a record by id we’ll use store.find('friend', id)
  2. If we want to fetch all the records for a given type, we’ll use store.findAll('friend')
  3. If we want to fetch all records using query paremeters then we’ll use store.findQuery('friend', {good: true}

We don’t need to way until the PR has been merged to start updating our code since findAll and findQuery are already part of the store! They were only marked as private and used internally by find.

If you have been using Ember-Data for a while I understand this might be annoying for you, but on the other side this is a step more towards 1.0 and having a better API,so, update your finds!
