See how easy it is to interact with external services by creating a service that will monitor collections and update any server containing URLs while using the DDP protocol.
- [Instructor] Today, we will be…going over the fourth video in section two,…creating content and adding collections,…integrating with external services.…We are going to create a Meteor server-only service,…from scratch, that's going to interact…with our existing Meteor application.…In order to do that, it will connect…to our existing application using DDP.…And we'll show you how that's done.…And the new service will listen in on the data,…and then, based on any changes to the snippets collection,…it will insert and become a helper for the content…of any of those snippets.…
What we want to happen is any time that a URL…is submitted, we wanna be able to turn that into a link,…rather than just text.…So in our current application,…if we had, for example, HTTP://Meteor.com,…it's text, just like anything else.…So we can click on it, but it doesn't take us anywhere.…This is, makes us sad panda.…We definitely want to be able to have any links…inside our snippets just automatically go across.…So what we're gonna do,…we're gonna create a new Meteor application.…
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.
