Meteor-collection-helpers vs. using transform function


#1

I’m curious what the advantage of using the dburles:meteor-collection-helpers package is vs. simply using the transform function available out of the box other than things look a tad prettier with the dburles:meteor-collection-helpers package.

Is that package doing something more? Different?


#2

dburles:meteor-collection-helpers is a thin (18 lines of code) wrapper around _transform, to make your code look nicer.


#3

Other than looking prettier, it takes care of the necessary work involved in setting up the transformation on the collection, which in itself can be a bit ugly/repetitive and perhaps a little low level.

Cool. Fair enough. I’m sold. Thanks guys.
