I’m not exactly sure anymore where we’re supposed to define our collections in 1.3.
Previously I would define the collections in a lib folder, now I’m not so sure anymore due to load order.
Currently I have mine defined in the server folder but I think that is causing errors since its not available on the client. Would I define my collection in the root import folder as well?
With meteor 1.3 you can use import.
Define your collection inside
And then if you need to access the collection from server code or client code, you can just import it.
