Github repositories

  • zimme/meteor-collection-timestampable

    The Gitter website provides information on using the zimme:collection-timestampable package for Meteor, which allows you to add timestamps to collections. By attaching the timestampable behavior, you can automatically generate createdAt and updatedAt fields for your documents. The website explains how to install and use the package, including attaching the behavior to collections, inserting new documents, and updating existing ones. It also mentions the available options for customizing field names and global configuration settings. If your application uses aldeed:collection2 and aldeed:autoform, this package integrates with them as well.

  • meteorhacks/unblock

    "Use this.unblock inside Meteor Publications" is a community project aimed at implementing the requested feature of using `this.unblock()` inside publications in Meteor. Currently, this feature is only available for methods, allowing other messages to be processed while a long method is running. The project provides the functionality as a community package called `meteorhacks:unblock`. By installing this package, publications can use `this.unblock()` to prevent other subscriptions from waiting on long-running publications.
