This week with Meteor we restructured the application. After developing on this project for the last month or so, we have decided on some best practices for our team. Drawing on other experiences that we have had with .Net, Backbone.js and Angular, we decided to go with a feature based approach.
This week with Meteor we attempted to bring in an external REST feed into the project. We were looking to bring the CodeMash session feed into the application. In order to do this, we needed to use import a Meteor package. We decided to use the http (https://atmospherejs.com/meteor/http ) package to do this since it was referenced in the Meteor documentation and looked to be the standard way to accomplish the task.
As I have been learning Meteor, I have found some great resources for the initial set up.
This is the official meteor tutorial– it’ll get you started with how to use Meteor. However there are a few things missing.
Unfortunately, this tutorial does not show you how to pass a parameter through a helper, which is incredibly important. The tutorial does not show you how, so I will!
