E47: Digits, Part 6

For this experience, you’ll get rid of the “Stuff” code from meteor-application-template.

I suggest you try doing this WOD yourself before watching me do it. It’s not hard.

Before starting this WOD, be sure to have merged the branch containing the “final” version of your previous WOD into master. See the screencast in the Readings for an illustration.

Note that switching branches on a running meteor application has the potential to put the application into an inconsistent state. To minimize problems, whenever you switch branches while doing meteor development, it is best to:

  1. Quit meteor.
  2. Invoke meteor reset to clear out the contents of the database.
  3. Re-invoke meteor. For applications based upon meteor-application-template, the correct invocation is meteor npm run start.


Ready? Let’s begin:

  1. Start your timer.

  2. Create and switch to a branch called “cleanup-stuff-1” in your local repository. You will do all the work for this WOD in this branch.

  3. Remove all references to Stuff: Collections, Routes, Pages, Imports. You should see command line and/or console errors to help ensure you’ve gotten rid of everything.

  4. Once you’ve finished, commit your changes to GitHub, and check to see that your changes are there.

  5. Stop your timer and record your time. Be sure to record it, because you will need your WOD time data when you write your technical essay.

Rx: <5 min Av: 5-8 min Sd: 8-10 min DNF: 10+ min


You can watch this before doing the WOD if you like:

If you want to try this WOD again, just commit your branch, then switch to the master branch to reset your system to its state at the end of the first Digits experience. Then create a new branch called cleanup-stuff-2 and start over.

Submission instructions

By the time and date indicated on the Schedule page, submit this assignment via Laulima.

Your submission should contain:

You will receive full credit for this practice WOD as long as you have attempted it at least once and submitted the email with all required data before the due date. Your code does not have to run perfectly for you to receive full credit. However, if you do not repeat each practice WOD until you can finish it successfully in at least AV time, you are unlikely to do well on the in-class WOD. To reduce the stress associated with this course, I recommend that you repeat each practice WOD as many times as necessary to achieve at least AV before its due date.
