Meteor common code



I have an application structure that looks exactly like the blaze tutorial. I’m using aldeed:tabular and put my TabularTables common code under imports/api/getlogins.js like this:

import { Meteor } from 'meteor/meteor';
import { Template } from 'meteor/templating';

import { Logins } from '../api/getlogins.js';

import './logins.html';

if (Meteor.isClient) {...}

TabularTables.Logins = new Tabular.Table({
name: "Logins",
collection: Logins,
pageLength: 500,

But getting this error when the page has loaded:

I20160816-11:02:30.789(1)? Exception from sub tabular_getInfo id 7P8KT77cxci2pKp5x Error: No TabularTable defined with the name “Logins”. Make sure you are defining your TabularTable in common code.

Any ideas?


Is it possible that aldeed/tabular is not compatible with code not existing on the global scope?

Where doe you import this file? Can you try to place it in a global scoped folder, like /src/lib ?


Thanks @smeijer, I was just trying that as you wrote this post. I put it under /lib, but I’m using Meteor 1.4 and I read somewhere that this is not recommended anymore. Is that true?

For now though, it does work by putting it under lib.


If it works like that, you at least found the problem.

You should be able to place it into the imports dir as well. But you must be sure to import the script in your startup script (usually main.js), or even better; in the Templates where you use it.

Also be sure to place import meteor/aldeed:tabulartables in the file you’re quoting above. As TabularTables now come from the global scope, which shouldn’t exists.


Thanks @smeijer, actually as I solved that problem, I noticed that some of the css from bootstrap and stopped working. I don’t have actual files of those, but just the CDNs in the client/logins.html file:

<title>Logins Dashboard</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"     href="">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">
<link rel="icon" sizes="16x16 32x32" href="/favicon.ico?v=2">

Any ideas why the CDN css isn’t being picked up anymore?


I just removed the CDN and put all CSS files under client/stylesheets and this worked. Then in logins.html:

<link rel="stylesheet">
