Transactions, ACID... in Meteor


#1

Hi there,

I need help: how would you typically go on a Meteor app to have something like exchanging tokens of value between users (for example, an abstraction of a money like euros)

I ask that because I currently don’t see any way of doing it.

What is my best bet? Drop MongoDB for PostreSQL for all this kind of data (bye reactivity?)

I saw the MemDB thing, but surprisingly noone has an official support for it with Meteor !

I also saw Meteor transaction package but as well, it does not support real data.

I seriously cannot afford a user to lose a token of value, so what would you typically do for that?


#2

I think you’re right – the way to do it is to use Apollo with a relational database, at the expense of reactivity.


#3

As you made this package for transactions, do you think it is possible to create a package that would be suitable for transferring tokens of value in Meteor?

I don’t know why nobody felt the need to do it yet


#4

When you say “tokens of value”, what do you mean?

For the record, I’m probably not the best person to make a package that ensures security. @pcorey is someone who’s thought about and done a lot with Meteor and good security practices.

Transferring stuff that is worth real money man

Came across this package which is relevant
