I noticed there are at least two ways to connect two meteor apps.
MONGO_URLs in the env of App1 and App2 to point to some external mongo instance.
MONGO_URL in the env of App2 to point to a mongo instance, and have App1 connect to App2 through
DDP.connect, and then pass this into calls to
//in App1 App2 = DDP.connect('http://app2url.somedomain.com') //App2 points to some mongo instance PostsFromApp2 = new Mongo.Collection('posts', App2) //does App1 point directly to the same mongo instance //or is it pointing to App2?
Is there a key architectural difference between these two methods? For example, in Method 1, both apps point directly to mongo. In Method 2, does the
'posts' data from App1 come from App2, which comes from mongo?
Any input is appreciated, thanks!
