I’m building a simple Login page and I want to understand how server side functions can notify the client when are done.
On my application, when I click a button I get the values password and user and call a server side function. My problem is that I need to tell the client if those credentials were valid or not. To do that my server side function POST an address and returns a value, because this is happening asynchronously, I’m not been able to return if the credentials were valid to the client.
By the way, I already checked http://www.meteorpedia.com/read/Async_on_server, and it seemed to me the worst possible solution, just delay the callback for some time? I can enumerate a few reasons why this would be a bad idea.
Anyway, I’m still on the basics and I’m having a hard time to understand how to handle this problem. All help is welcome.
