We have the situation where there is a piece of client side state (per client-window, or per connection, however you may see it), for the users.
It’d be really cool if we could just set additional information to either the current connection object inside meteor methods + publications and possibly add it to those
this - contexts - like this.someOtherId or something?
It just seems a bit tedious & possibly error-prone, with possible race conditions during connection & the client submitting the information to the server using a method call, during which time the data on the server wouldn’t be up-to-date.
So, i’m looking for two things actually:
- How to add additional information to the connection context if possible?
And another thing:
- Are there any cool packages which allow me to modify the context of all method call & subscription “attempts” (best to be before any resolution of the method name etc, but also after) - some package which would provide a toolkit / additional hooks for methods + publications?
If b) isn’t available yet, WHY NOT??? → It’d be worth to pay for it to extend the meteor core connection / method & publication - code with these additional hooks I think.
Anybody else who thinks this could be valuable?
→ I’d chip in for a bounty, if there’d be general interest in this kind of thing!
