Haha ;)
Alright, we have a different point of view.
I really understand what you're saying and agree it makes our life much easy.

But I believe that there's a lot of good developers or potentially good developers(students) still in the world without good English ability.
And especially this kind of special platform need to have low 'entrance' to study at the first time.
The other famous platforms are usually having their own communities and documents with their own native languages in many countries, so this kind of echo system makes the platform grow well.

I'm not sure you are English native people or not,
but I'm pretty sure that you'll write better documents even in the English version,
if you could understand this factor.
Even your documents are always clear and good enough for me ;)

Anyway, my question was 'Do you have some idea to translate the docs.meteor.com officially',
so I could say your answer could be 'I think it's not necessary.'
Right? haha-

@dr-dimitru
@kakadais since it's opensource — fork it, translate it, and deploy it to free again Galaxy hosting
kakadais
@kakadais
@dr-dimitru Yeah- I just wanted to make an language option on docs.meteor.com ;) Cheers-

@distalx
When I upload base64 string, would it store the image in the MongoDB itself or Images are still being stored on the server dir?
distalx
@distalx
Okay, I figured it out. it images are still getting stored on disk.
dr.dimitru
@dr-dimitru
Just got your message, yes, by default everything goes to disk, even with gridfs integration

@bmartin1134
is it possible to upload directly to amazon s3, similar to slingshot. from the docs it seems like i need to upload to the server first
dr.dimitru
@dr-dimitru
@bmartin1134 no, not possible. Yes, got to upload to the server first.

I am trying to create a gallery of uploaded images. I am stuck trying to iterate over all images and display the image on the page using the "imageFile.link" helper.
    'files': function() {
        console.log("files()");

        var files = Images.find({}).cursor;

        for (file in files) {
            console.log("FILE:",file);
            console.log("link = " + file.link());
        }


        return files;
and the Template:
<template name="files">
    <h1>Files:</h1>
    <ul>
    {{#each files}}
        <li>{{ name }} - {{ imageFile.link }} <textarea>{{ tostring this }}</textarea></li>
    {{/each}}
    </ul>
</template>
So, how am I properly to use the Images collection - I think I am missing something about how the collection differs from a "standard" mongo collection - it seems there are other functions built in : like "link()"
SO I'm trying to understand that aspect of it.
Hmm....reading this
dr.dimitru
@dr-dimitru
@thespacecowboys45 .find() would return filesCursorhttps://github.com/veliovgroup/Meteor-Files/wiki/FilesCursor
Template.files.helpers({
    files() {
        console.log("files()");

        var files = Images.find({});

        for (file in files.fetch()) {
            console.log("FILE:",file);
            console.log("link = " + file.link());
        }


        return files;
<template name="files">
    <h1>Files:</h1>
    <ul>
    {{#each files.each}}
        <li>{{ name }} - {{ link }} <textarea>{{ tostring this }}</textarea></li>
    {{/each}}
    </ul>
</template>

@thespacecowboys45
I ended up with this:
Template.files.helpers({
    'files': function() {
        var files = Images.find({}, { sort: { _id: 1 }}).cursor;

        return files;
    },
and
<template name="files">
    <h1>Files:</h1>
    <button>Click me</button>
    <ul>
    {{#each files}}
        <li>{{ name }} - {{ imageLink _id }} - <img class="size_thumb" src="{{ imageLink _id }}" /> <textarea>{{ tostring this }}</textarea></li>
    {{/each}}
    </ul>
</template>
and then another helper function to lookup and return the FileCursor :::
    imageLink(id) {
        console.log("imageLink for: " + id);
        path = Images.findOne({_id:id}).link();
          return path;
    },
dr.dimitru
@dr-dimitru
@thespacecowboys45 looks a little overcomplicated with .findOne() method call, which is unnecessary
kakadais
@kakadais

I think I understand what @thespacecowboys45 says.

The document explains the usage,

Images.collection.find({}).forEach(function (fileRef) {
  Images.link(fileRef);
});

And I used to get the links in cursor something like this to be clear for my co-workers (not familiar on this library).

Images.collection.find({}).forEach(function (fileRef) {
  Images.findOne(fileRef._id).link()
});

But it could be better and clear if we could get a link on fileRef or cursor directly.

Images.collection.find({}).forEach(function (fileRef) {
    fileRef.link()
});

I know there would be proper reason not to be accomplished this,
but I still think that would be good to be understood for new people.

Could it be?
Cheer up man - haha ;)

dr.dimitru
@dr-dimitru

But it could be better and clear if we could get a link on fileRef or cursor directly.

And you can:

Images.collection.find({}).each(function (fileCursor) {
    fileCursor.link()
});

And I used to get the links in cursor something like this to be clear for my co-workers (not familiar on this library).

Better to add reference to the docs right in the in-code docs, than running expensive .findOne

kakadais
@kakadais
Do you suggest this way?
each() returns cursor array and there's no callback.
Images.find().each().forEach (cursor) -> cl cursor.link()
kakadais
@kakadais
I realize forEach contains object, and Meteor collection forEach as well.
But I suggest that it would be great if the object contains the link or link() method in the object just like a data if it's possible-

Hi, I'd like to insert zip files generated on the server side to a Meteor-Files collection, but I get an error that 'CaseFiles.insert is not a function'. Is this by design? But how do you save a file on the server?
dr.dimitru
@dr-dimitru
@kurvenschubser1_gitlab .insert() (e.g. upload) is Client only method. Look at .addFile() and .write() Server-only methods

@dr-dimitru Works great, thanks a bunch!
