Learn how to use default HTML input elements, such as text fields and buttons, wrapped inside Meteor templates.
- [Voiceover] This is going to be the second video…in section two, creating content…and adding collections adding content through user input.…Specifically we'll show how to use…the default HTML input elements inside of Meteor templates…and we will handle those events…through the template events handler's section.…So, here we go.…Now as you can see up here in the top of the screen,…we have a lot of real estate to deal with…so we're going to go ahead and put in a text area…and a button inside of there.…
So we're going to our tmpl-toolbar.html file.…We're going to go ahead and add a new list item…and we're going to create a class…and the class name here is going to be navbar-form,…some other stuff that Bootstrap needs navbar-left…to make it look nice and good.…And then we're going to put in a specific form-group…inside of there.…So we're going to put an input with an ID of txtAdd.…We're going to make sure that it is of type text…and format it here just a little bit.…Make sure that it is nice and readable.…
Okay, and we're also going to put in a placeholder…
Meteor is an incredibly powerful, impossibly fun platform for building responsive web and mobile applications. Meteor uses modular components, full-stack reactivity, and data on the wire, leading the charge toward truly effective application development.
Learning Meteor Application Development will get you up and running on the Meteor platform and on your way to creating web and mobile applications in hours instead of weeks. By taking advantage of all of Meteor's capabilities, you can take your development skills to the next level and build those "killer apps" you've been dreaming about.
Author Isaac Strack begins by installing Meteor, configuring the development environment, and building a baseline application. Then he shows how to create a full-stack application and build a simple, elegant, and data-reactive interface. He connects that UI to back-end services by creating a MongoDB data collection, Meteor DDP services, and a RESTful API. Finally, you'll learn how to test the application and deploy it to Meteor's servers or to a customized production environment, to show it off to the world.
