Building a Slack Clone in MeteorJS (Part 2): Real-Time Data

via Building a Slack Clone in Meteor.js: Real-Time Data | Scotch.

This is the second of a five-part series on building a Slack clone using Meteor. The aim of these tutorials are not just for you to blindly follow instructions, but it’s our hope that you’ll understand the thought process and reasoning behind the architecture.

If you followed along with our previous article, you’d understand the killer features of Meteor, installed it on your machine and created the layout and styles of our apps using templates. We have also explained what Meteor does behind the scenes.

In this lesson, we will code the beef of the application and produce a fully-functional, live-updating chat room.
