Meteor App Liveblog (Entry 4)

Oh dear! We really aren’t going very fast. I blame the need to get familiar with MongoDB. I’ve taken a bit of time to find a decent GUI to visualize what’s going on. Okay – I know this isn’t strictly necessary. But for a first time Meteor user like me it’s quite nice. Here’s my recommendations

  • Grab a copy of GenghisApp. It seems to start natively at IP address
  • Add the mongo database. You can find the correct URI by typing meteor mongo in your app directory
  • Tada! You’ll now be able to navigate around (and add/change) your collections.

Time to get some logic going, and basic Bootstrap styling. Once that’s in place I’ll put the current progress onto the servers so you can follow along.
