First I would like to say I’m a hudge fan of Meteor projet ! I’m using it everywhere, it’s awesome.
But I have a big project on Meteor and I have to update it on a full API (REST/Socket) using node (with no html results).
The real question: What’s the best way to build an API with Express and Socket.io who can act as Meteor.server for a Meteor project on a different server AND domain name ?
Do something already exist that I did not found ?
- The user concact interface-server.com (with meteor) and receive the bundle
Meteor.subscribe()are redirected on client to api-server.com as with http/socket classics requests to the node API
- In the best world, the meteor.server on interface-server.com should not be involved here (who are used only to download the client bundle), only the user and the node server are talking
- Node server know he’s talking with a Meteor app and reply like a Meteor server with publications.
I was thinking about create 2 npm module, one for the node server and another one to the client to help implementation on future projects.
I’m open for every idea, existing projects…
Thank you all
