Coming from a ER/SQL life, I have found denormalisation to be very hard to put into practice (i.e mental block).
I’m using jeanfredrik:denormalize to automatically sync up some fields, but it would be great if it worked.
Anyone out there using it successfully?
Aside: I thought a automated index sync for mongo, like this, would be core or at least a very popular tool so we’re not all writing the same
col1.update, col2.update, col3.update code everytime… there seems to be no tools for syncing denormalised values across collections. Even Discover Meteor just did it adhoc (probably trying to show you how it works under the hood).
