I spent an insanely long time thinking about the database.
I asked a lot of questions that received no answers, because no one knew.
Essentially, I copied the mechanism behind Wordpresses database, that is, having two tables: wp_posts and wp_postmeta.
These become collections in Meteor.
Inside of wp_posts you define post_type, which can be anything, in this case, “friend”.
Then find all from jbedworth where post_type = “friend”.
In Meteor this is hard to do, but using this database schema allows for EASY data publications, as we are already subscribed to wp_posts, all we have to do is simply publish this stream, and the data is made available to the user.
By the way, long live Blaze UI. It’s beautiful and very simple.
