I notice that when I do an update to the app (app deployed using node via meteor build), at times the client doesn’t do a refresh and is actually not connected to the server anymore. How do I detect this in the client side a do a reconnection or a force refresh?
Take a look here: http://docs.meteor.com/#/full/meteor_status
You can use
Meteor.status() on the client to get the connection status and
Meteor.reconnect() to force a reconnection if the client is not already connected.
So if the client isn’t updated anymore (you upload an updated copy of the meteor node app), the client can detect this and do a refresh no?
