Where does Tracker.autorun go

I was reviewing @arunoda repo on FlowRouter and it mentions once you registered your subscription you can reactively check on it using this

Tracker.autorun(function() {
    console.log("Is myPost ready?:", FlowRouter.subsReady("myPost"));
    console.log("Does all subscriptions ready?:", FlowRouter.subsReady());

What I don’t understand is where I put this piece of code should it be in the ‘subscription’ inside the route? or should I just include this as a helper or outside of a helper but in that same file. Not sure where to put this.

You can put it anywhere you like, it doesn’t need to be in the same file as long as it runs on the client.

I haven’t looked at @arunoda 's code but I’m guessing this goes into the Templates created method. For example

Template.templateName.created = function () {
  var template = this;
  template.autorun(function() {
    // Make user reactive so that it reloads after the userProfile
    // subscription is ready.
    var user = Meteor.user();
    if(user) {

@robsw has a good point – if you use this.autorun inside a template’s created hook, the function is automatically stopped when the instance gets removed again.

(Note, in regard to user data, that all publications are automatically rerun whenever login status changes.)
