Meteor is no longer a new concept to those who study and work in IT section. Unlike other frameworks, Meteor is a smart and powerful tool that allows you build web and mobile applications with one single language of JavaScript.

In terms of programming, Meteor is described as an open-source and full-stack JavaScript platform that includes a key set of technologies for building reactive web and mobile applications. Meteor requires less code, so even though you are newbies to programming, you are able to build your own amazing app in a very short time. Sound great!

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

From the perspective of a newbie, I must say that Meteor is the easiest framework to use that I have ever known. Using Meteor, you are not required to know much about complicated stuff relating to programming. Instead, with a solid background of JavaScript and a basic understanding of things such as HTML, CSS, and MongoDB, you can build and run a modern app following a decent structure provided by Meteor.
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.

Full-stack reactivity

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

Real-time application

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.

JavaScript — One language solves all
