I’ve done some digging around and a lot of the threads regarding file system and how it works with Meteor seem to be pretty outdated, not to mention packages related to file storage/serving (i.e. CollectionFS). I was wondering if anyone here has deep experience with handling files in lieu of 1.4 or even 1.3 (I am currently on 188.8.131.52).
My questions are as follows:
- Did Meteor 1.3/1.4 come with any changes regarding fs?
- What is the general best approach to storing and serving static assets in light of Meteor 1.4?
- I’ve seen many threads that say dynamically storing files to
/publictriggers a server upload, but I’ve tested this on local by manually copy/pasting a
/public, and it only triggers a client refresh with the console message
Client modified -- refreshing. Would this hold true for files added during runtime, and would it hold true in production?
Currently I am trying to stay clear from S3 or any other third party CDN’s to keep a low budget, and also trying to stay clear from storing files into Mongo.
Thanks for any and all opinions!
