I have one project that I started without much direction or knowledge where I keep two separate remote APIs in sync with my local collections. I’m about to start another project and I want to see if there is a standard way to keep remote information identical with the local MongoDB collections. One of the APIs (Plaid.com) I’ll be pulling from uses _id’s as the record id’s so I probably won’t have to mess with that data when getting it, however there will be other APIs (my local bank and others) that aren’t as friendly.
I’m really just looking for some direction, maybe some resources. I have read a MongoDB book and taken some advice from @arunoda’s bullet proof meteor https://bulletproofmeteor.com/database-modeling/. I’m still not confident I’m breaking my collections in the right places and separating the data in the best way.
