How to detect a disconnection from an updated app?


#1

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?


#2

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.


#3

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?
