I am building a small EmberJS application using the Ember-CLI. In the application I have a map that I wanted to load some data to. I ended up picking an Ember Component to control the map so that I could use the didInsertElement method to make sure that my maps markup was ready to be initialized.


//Component called main-map
export default Ember.Component.extend({
	componentMap: '',
	didInsertElement: function() {
