If you're reading this, you've probably got your Node.js app connecting to MongoDB somehow - maybe even using Mongoose. What happens if the connection between Node.js and MongoDB is severed for any reason?
I spent some time running through the React Native tutorial and studying the APIs. It’s a great tutorial because it shows you how to get data from a RESTful API and update a React Native view. One thing that seems understated is that you can use NPM packages.
My first reaction was to try an build a app that uses the DDP NPM package to connect it to Meteor. Unfortunately the DDP NPM package didn’t work because there’s not a built in interface for websockets (yet). I ended up using an alternative approach and used the React Native bridge to connect to Objective DDP.
I was emboldened by my recent research into Meteor and its potential capabilities in comparison to Angular, React, Ember, Derby and other sub-frameworks if you will. Herein, I summarize my experience and summarize some key lessons as my Meteor journey continues.
I recently read a post that talked about how Meteor, especially the server side, is hard to debug. I highly disagree with that statement. I actually think debugging is easier than in most languages that I've tried. Since I seem to think it is easy but others don't, it is time for a blog post to share that knowledge!
This is the first of a five-part series on building a Slack clone using Meteor. The aim of these tutorials are not just for you to blindly follow instructures, but it’s our hope that you’ll understand the thought process and reasoning behind the architecture. Installation Installation is simple, just run the shell script Meteor prepared […]
Although our project was ambitious, we wanted to use whatever meteor packages that were available to us in order to best integrate with the Meteor environment, and to save time by not having to reinvent the wheel. At the onset we considered several approaches which were ultimately not chosen for certain reasons. These include:
Using minimongo as client side db - ultimately this would be trying to fit a square peg in a round hole by making relational data non-relational.Implementing oplog capabilities for PostgreSQL - Ultimately this would have been an entirely different project with an entirely different scope.Reducing the scope - Other implementations of SQL in Meteor had focused on achieving one way reactivity (server to client), and so we felt it would simplify our task if we chose to abandon goals of database everywhere or latency compensation. Ultimately this was not a concession we were willing to make.
Throughout the start of the project our approach was refined, and ultimately we landed on the following:
n a previous post I explained the basics of SANE and created a simple application. In this post I'll be going one step further and adding a relationship between two tables, using Sails.js, Mongo and Ember.
Relatonships occur when one foreign key references the primary key of another. Since we'll be using a nosql data store we'll be using document references instead. We'll set the schema using Sails.js so don't worry too much about that for now.
In this post, we will see how we can leverage the power of Meteor js to build top quality apps at lightning pace. We will take a quick look at how the framework works and how we can leverage it to build apps easily.
By the end of this post, we will be building 2 apps. A Single Page Chat Application (SPA) only with Meteor js to get a feel of Meteor & a Multi Page Application (MPA) named Events Feed, leveraging Meteorite js – a package manager for Meteor js & Iron router, that will serve the purpose of a Chat app at live public events.
