I’m beginning with Meteor, but like to think I know what I’m doing with JS generally.
As an exercise, I want to write an app that has a single user form that accepts a word as input. When submitted, I want to retrieve dictionary definitions from several online dictionaries and display those to the user.
In a pure react app you’d do that all in the client, but in a Meteor app, would it be better to submit the request to the server, have the server submit the web requests and then publish the results back to the client for rendering when they arrived?
I realise there are easier ways of achieving this simple end result, but I’m doing this to learn Meteor and will add other more complex features to it as I learn, so I want to get the architecture right early on.
