Creating a better reactive ReactJS JavaScript architecture

Submitted by markoshust Fri, 08/12/2016 - 10:32

After working through a few ReactJS JavaScript projects based in Meteor, what the ecosystem lacks is a really good architecture that will grow with you. Not only should it be adaptable and somewhat future-proof in a space that seems to be ever-changing at a rapid pace, but it lacks having an established organizational paradigm present, specifically when dealing with reactive, single-page applications.

Creating a multi-page form using MobX with Meteor & React

Submitted by markoshust Thu, 06/02/2016 - 13:58

Mobx is a really simple state manager that can be used really nicely with React, when you don't need the complexity of a Redux implementation.

Using Mobx is pretty straight-forward, however their getting started documentation uses stage-0 class properties, which are currently not supported with Meteor 1.3. The simple fix is to use ES6 formatting.

Creating a Custom Production Docker Image for Meteor 1.3

Submitted by markoshust Mon, 02/01/2016 - 12:58

Meteor 1.3 introduces custom package.json support, which allows you to use custom NPM packages within your Meteor app. This is great, because up to Meteor 1.2 you needed to use oddly formatted "NPM wrapper" packages.

This setup does include a slightly different build process though, as we need to install these custom NPM packages within our production Meteor app.
