Learn how to set up your file structure, the order of execution for files and folders, and how to affect the visibility of files and assets in a Meteor application.
- [Narrator] Today we'll be going over the third video…in section one, getting up and running with Meteor,…and this will be An Introduction to Meteor Scaffolding.…Whenever you start a project in Meteor you're going to…want to have a very specific file structure.…The reason for that project folder structure is to…make sure that everything executes cleanly,…and what gets executed gets executed on the client…and on the server, or on both depending on your…folder structure.…Likewise the order of execution is also determined by…the folders that your particular files may be in,…and by the names of those files.…
And then finally there's some visibility and scope issues…that we'll wanna cover.…OK, so the first part of this has to do with the…basic folder structure.…Whenever you start a project this is pretty much the…three folders that you're going to create.…First one is a client folder, and a server folder…is the second, and then the third is pretty much…anything else, but we're gonna use the word model.…Now the first one, the client folder, will execute code…
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.
