Why should you choose Meteor?
You may have heard or read a number of articles that are all about Meteor. Some people even call Meteor a magic. You also had a look around its benefits in our previous blog Get Started With Meteor. Now, let me go in details of reasons for choosing Meteor for your future projects according to both programming gurus and beginners in this blog.
Easy to learn and simple to work
My point is that whether you are new to programming, a semi-experienced developer or not full-fledged ones, you will find it surprisingly easy to work with Meteor indeed.
Meteor is a full package of different technology components that work together to get your app run smoothly such as:
– The front-end rendering library (Blaze, React and Angular) for making raw data and logic understandable to browsers;
– DDP (distributed data protocol) for connecting non-Meteor apps to Meteor servers or non-Meteor servers;
– Livequery for transforming Mongo into a real-time database
– Microservices — an architectural pattern for breaking your app up into modules that run as separate services. They communicate by API’s or in Meteor using service discovery and the above-mentioned component of DDP.
– Meteor’s current main database — MongoDB
By using DDP (Distributed Data Protocol), Meteor makes it possible for you to see any changes made on every open page of the app without a browser refresh. For example, if you highlight a word of an online PDF document with yellow, then every open browser will show this highlighted word without refreshing them.
