Including JSON data from a https source into an Ember.js App

Hi there, I was wondering if you could help me with this problem.

I have a set of data that I have stored in JSON format for use in my Ember.js app. When I write the information straight into my index.js file (see below) it shows up however I want the data to be coming from an online source (public dropbox page) so that I can update it.

import Ember from 'ember';

export default Ember.Route.extend({
  model() {

var locations = [
{ etc etc etc.

return locations;


Is it possible to retrieve this online JSON data to be used in my app?

Thank you!
