Stop using async with Meteor. Futures are the future (still).
View resolving.js
// Go forth and code with the simplicity of sync
// PSA: this isn't production ready, and just a PoC, but enjoy using it!
// server only, as we need fibers (co-routines)!
import Future from 'fibers/future';

$ | Acts as a placeholder to update the first element that matches the query condition.

Docs are correct, but consider this example:
