MathFriends

MathFriends! MathFriends is primarily a test-project to prove the viability of the Meteor framework.

The site is intended to be used to share small snippets of math in a way similar MathB.in.




Maxwell's Equations One reason I wanted to do the project anyway was that I felt I could make a site that projected a more fun atmosphere. The real reason, though, was to see if the Meteor framework would be viable for more serious projects. The answer to that question is...

NPM MongoDB

That is seriously about it for a basic application. There are three more things to do for the real-world though:
