Javascript client side single page platform.

What is it?

Meteor is a full-stack Open-source web application framework.

What is it like?

I have used Meteor on several projects and found that it was quite powerful and easy to learn.

I liked that it provided the basic building blocks and offered some powerful templating features that would update the UI in real time - a very nice touch.

The testing frameworks and package management tools have matured quite a bit, and there is even tie-ins for Angular and ReactJS built in.

Meteor is a good choice when it comes to creating a real time single page application. I have written about single page Javascript frameworks here.



While pleasant to work with, this has been deprecated in favour of other Javascript frameworks that tie into a microservice architecture. Keeping back and front end components for a product facilitates scaling.
