Anagrams = new Meteor.Collection('anagrams') in both client and server (which is essential) you would have to have a globals.js file with nothing more than
- bootstrap-3 (for styling)
- bootstrap3:glyphicons (for cool glyphicons)
- moment (for time and date formatting)
- coffee-script (for scripting)
- iron:router (for page routing)
Wordsleuth’s functionality let’s you choose from different dictionaries, it’s main stock dictionary being the Scrabble (TM) Player’s dictionary. Other languages are slated for inclusion, such as Spanish, German, and French. Also, I plan to make native Android app at some point, as I am unhappy with the way Meteor plays with phones at the moment.
Like most projects, it feels like they are never done, but my purpose for this project wasn’t to create the best anagram app on the market, because there are som out there that are admittedly better, but I do imagine I’ll keep adding features and functionality as it comes. The goal of my project was to make a finished MeteorJS product that has minimal styling (because I’m not a front-end developer by any means, and I am horrible at writing 21st century html), and that I could share with other developers at Meteor events, etc…, in the hopes of proving that 1) I am somewhat competent at writing Meteor apps, and 2) I can actually finish a product, even if I’m a little unsure about a few things. At some point though, you have to move on, and put out what you have. Nothing is ever perfect, at least not to me.
Anyway, if you have time, or are curious, my app can be found here and the Git Hub project is located here.. Thanks for reading, I’ll post updates to the app as they come about. Until then…
