I feel like Meteor needs a clean way to retrieve static data from the server, so I decided to scratch my itch with this proof of concept package. It relies on Method’s and Reactive-Dict to help you pull static data from the server, display it on the client, and refresh as needed.
I had some free time today, so I put together a demo here. You can also read more on GitHub. I thought I’d throw it out early to see what people think and to see if anyone else wants to join the effort.
