Chapter 9. Advanced Reactivity

Now our blog is basically complete, as we can create and edit entries. In this chapter, we will make use of Meteor's reactive templates to make our interface timestamps update itself. We will build a reactive object that will rerun the template helper, which displays the time when the blog entries were created. This way, they will always display the correct relative time.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Reactive programming
  • Rerunning functions manually
  • Building a reactive object using the Tracker package
  • Stopping reactive functions
