Meteor App Liveblog (Entry 5)

So we’re into the last few hours and sadly haven’t quite got as far as I hoped. But… we have got a very simple prototype up, allowing you to add people to the database. The next couple of hours will probably involve

  • providing full info in popovers
  • including a delete functionality
  • implementing a login (and proper security)
  • adding the “concerts” page

What have I learnt in the last few hours? Here are the highlights

  • Stylus is awesome. Use it.
  • Don’t try to use form tags. It’s not worth the trouble.
  • You can (and should) split up your client, server and public files into so-named directories. See the parties example. Goodness knows why this isn’t the default directory structure!
  • The hr tag is useful for splitting up sections

Hope some of that’s useful! If you want to check out the prototype as it develops, bookmark http://fixersdream.meteor.com/.
