      In Meteor the client calls functions on the server using methods. These methods are similar to RPC (Remote Procedure Calls) and are a way to secure your applications by having the server validate the data sent. Here’s how the basic syntax of a method looks like:

      Meteor.methods({
        'myMethod': function () {
          // do stuff
        }
      });
      

      And here’s how you call the method on the client:

      Meteor.call("myMethod");
