Can I add data from a second data base with Tabular?

I’m using tabular for the tables and I want also put a fourth column for showing information of a second database. Is this possible? Does somebody knows any example I can use?


It’s a bit hacky, but I’ve used template cells in the past. I say hacky because you rely on a more direct db connection/selector to grab data from your 1st collection, while you’d need to use a more standard pub/sub for the information you want to display in the template cell.

You can use things like this._id in the template cell helper to reference the row’s properties, in the event that you need those as a param in your cursor, etc.

Let me know if this helps…
