Why Meteor?

Business part

Open-source

  • Free (MIT license)
     
  • Meteor is a mature open-source framework
     
  • Big community - developed for over a decade and trusted by over 500k developers, including industry giants.

Rapid development

  • Quick app bootstrapping
  • Opinionated in some technologies
  • Real-time, accounts, and other features for free
  • Easily integrate additional technologies
  • Use popular frameworks and tools right out-of-the-box
  • Focus on building features instead of bikeshedding

Build apps for any device

You can use the same source code to build apps for:

  • Web
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Desktop (Windows, MacOS, Linux)

and have seamless user experience everywhere

There is no rose without thorns

but…

When Meteor might not be the right choice for the project

  • A relational database is required as the primary source for the data
     
  • No need for any real-time data or updates
     
  • Ultra-high backend performance is needed from day one*

* The "Meteor does not scale" is a myth, but indeed its quite easy to write your app in a way that you'll have performance/scaling issues
