An introduction to the very popular Meteor package, Iron Router. Information on where to go for more information and how to install it in your Meteor application.
- [Narrator] Today we'll be going over the first video…in section three, Creating Clean Web…and REST Services, and Introduction to Iron Router.…We'll take a look at Iron Router, why it's needed,…and resources available for Iron Router,…to learn more about it, and then we'll install it…for our application.…When developing web applications,…you want to be able to control flow, okay?…Where the user is at, what the user is looking at,…and whether they are looking at…multiple records, say, or a single individual record,…or maybe even if they're updating something.…
The way to do that traditionally is through…a routing package, to control the page…that they're on, or the state that the application is in.…Chris Mathers put together an excellent package…called Iron Router, and this package is available…in Atmosphere, and it has well over 43,000 downloads,…and 218 stars, by far the most popular package…out there, and for good reason.…It's well-documented, it's constantly updated,…and it's put together by someone…who really knows what Meteor's all about.…
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.
