Quiz 6: Databases and collections summary quiz

Q1. Why is a Meteor application like a database cluster?

  • Because the database only runs in the client machines
  • Because Meteor applications are very scalable
  • Because the server runs on a Mongo cluster
  • Because each connected client runs a local copy of the database

Q2. Why do we define collections like this:

Images = new Mongo.Collection("images");

instead of:

var Images = new Mongo.Collection("images");

  • Meteor does not use the word var in its javaScript code.
  • If you define a var in a Meteor .js file, it becomes local to that file, and you cannot access it in other .js files in your app. (try it!).
  • Variables with capital letters for their name are automatically global variables.
  • var is not the correct keyword in javaScript to define a variable.

Q3. What does running the command

meteor reset

in a meteor application’s folder do?

Q5. Which of the following is the correct way to access a collection in Meteor?

  • Meteor.Images.find({});
  • Mongo.find("images", {})
  • Images.find({})
  • Images.find().count()

Q6. Regarding this function call, which are true?

Images.update({_id:'123'}, {$set:{rating:4}});

  • The rating field will be set to 123
  • {_id:’123′} is a Mongo filter that only allows the update to be applied to images with the _id ‘123’.
  • The $set command is a mongo command that allows a field to be set to a new value.
  • The rating field will be set to 4

Q7. Which of the following statements will retrieve the images with the lowest rated one coming first?

  • Images.find({}).sort({rating:1});
  • Images.find({}, {sort:{rating:1}})

  • The items in the property set have strings for their names
  • There are no events passed into the event listener functions
  • There are full stops (periods) before the CSS selectors

  • The Session variable prevents this by default.
  • The site will take a long time to load.

Introduction to Meteor.js Development Week 4 Quiz Answers

Quiz 1: How to organise your code

Q1. Which files do not go in the public folder?

  • Meteor app javaScript code such as template helper functions
  • Image files

Q2. Why are Meteor.isClient and Meteor.isServer not needed in code in the server and client folders?

  • Code in the client and server folders will only run on the client or the server, respectively. Therefore, we do not need to test where it is running.
  • It is guaranteed that Meteor will run all of the code in these folders on both the client and the server.

Quiz 2: Hack into your site!

Q1. In terms of what you have access to, the browser console environment is equivalent to:

  • The inside of an ‘if(Meteor.isServer)’ block
  • The inside of an ‘if(Meteor.isClient)’ block

Q2. What was the key message in this video?

  • Don’t use databases to store user generated content.
  • Don’t trust users to behave on your site.

Quiz 3: Make your site more secure

Q1. What is the name of the package that makes your app easier to develop, but not very secure

  • Insecure
  • Secure

Q2. In the video, before we implemented delete permissions, why does the image disappear then re-appear when we click on it?

  • The jQuery code makes the image disappear, then the animation is cancelled as the image is not allowed to be deleted.
  • The image is actually deleted from the local copy of the collection, but when the server checks the permissions, it blocks the delete from happening to the central copy. Then, the local collection re-syncs and reactivity causes the template to re-render.

Quiz 4: Tidy up the project

Q1. Which of the following is true?

  • The lib folder is only sent to the server.
  • JavaScript code in the lib folder runs before other code.

Q2. Do you need the ‘if(Meteor.isServer)’ test in the lib folder?

  • No

Quiz 5: Routing with iron:router

Q1. If we put the following code in our client javascript code, which template will be rendered when we visit http://localhost:3000/images?

Router.route('/', function(){ 

  this.render('images'); 

}); 

Router.route('/images', function(){ 

  this.render('navbar'); 

});

  • The images template.
  • The navbar template.

Q2. Why do we need to use routing?

  • To allow the specification of different pages on the site that the user can move to, without needing to completely reload the page.
  • To allow the creation of a sitemap showing the routes around the site.

Quiz 6: Better routing

Q1. What should the name attribute of the main layout template be set to if I configure the router using the following code:

Router.configure({ 

  layoutTemplate:'MainLayout',  })

  • MainLayout
  • LayoutTemplate

Q2. What does the yield mean in the following code?

{{> yield "header"}}

  • It is instructing the router that there is a point in the layout template to which it can render sub-templates and that it is called ‘header’.
  • It is instructing the router to render a template called ‘header’ at this point.

Quiz 7: Security and routing summary quiz

Q1. Which folder would you put template helper code into? (choose the best option)

  • server
  • shared
  • client
  • public

Q2. Where would you put collection definition code? (choose the best option)

Q3. What will the following code do if you run it in the browser console?

for (var i = 0; i < 1000; i += 2){
Images.insert({
“img_src”:”no good!”});}

  • Nothing – the browser console has security features which prevent malicious users from executing dangerous code on websites.
  • Insert 500 images into the images collection
  • Insert 1000 images to the image collection
  • Nothing – you cannot insert images using a loop

Q4. What is the correct code to check the user is logged in before they can delete an image? (select all that apply)

  • Images.remove.allow(function(userId, doc){
    if (userId){
    return true;
    } else {
    return false; } })
  • Images.allow({
    remove:function(userId, doc){
    if (userId){
    return true;
    } else {
    return false; } } });
  • Images.allow({
    remove:function(userId, doc){
    if (Meteor.user()){
    return true;
    } else {
    return false; } } });
  • Images.allow({
    delete:function(userId, doc){
    if (userId){
    return true;
    } else {
    return false; } } });

Q5. What will the following code print in the browser console when a user tries to insert an image. assuming they are logged in?

Images.allow({
insert:function(userId, doc){
if (Meteor.isServer){
console.log(“insert on server”);
}
if (Meteor.isClient){

  • Router.route(‘/’, function(){ this.render(‘images’); });
  • Router.route(‘images’, function(){ this.render(‘/’); });
  • Router.route(‘/images’, function(){ this.render(‘images’); });
  • Router.route({ images: function(){ this.render(‘images’); } });

Q8. Which of the following is the most correct way to create a route that can take the user to a view called ‘/images’?

  • <a href="images">go to images</a>
  • <a href="http://localhost:3000/images">go to images</a>
  • <a href="/images">go to images</a>
  • <a src="/images" >go to images</a>

Q9. Which statements are true about the following code?

Router.route(‘/images/:_id’, function () {
this.render(‘Home’, {
data: function () {
return Images.findOne({_id: this.params._id});} }); });

  • The Home template will be rendered
  • If the user views the address http://localhost:3000/images/123, the data context will be a single image that has the _id = 123.
  • The data context for the template will be a single image
  • We are defining a route that can be accessed via http://localhost:3000/Home when the server is running on our local machine.
