Meteor fastRender with handlebars helpers


I’m having some difficulties with the fastRender package.

In my code I have created a handlebars helper (current template) that gets a value from the current user object. When the page is first rendered, the user object is not ready yet (undefined). I would expect as noted by the docs of fastRender that the user object will always be available on the clients first render.

You can see in the screenshot the first undefined lines. This is when the client accesses the Meteor.user() in the helper I defined.

I would have expected that with using fastRender the current user (on the client) would always be present because it is send along with the first page response.

Anyone having any idea?
