Meteor.jsLearn basics of Meteor.js

MeteorJS is a JavaScript framework for creating powerful web application that runs on cross-platform and integrates well with other libraries. Keeping up with MeteorJS is not easy, and that’s why we have created a dedicated page for it. Here, you can find every information about it, including books, projects, and even conferences. Our broadcasters will also keep you busy with all their project based streams, keeping you engaged for a long time!


Introduction to MeteorJS JavaScript Framework (Reference)

Meteor, or MeteorJS, is a free and open-source JavaScript web framework written using Node.js. Meteor allows for rapid prototyping and produces cross-platform (web, Android, iOS) code. It integrates with MongoDB and uses the Distributed Data Protocol and a publish–subscribe pattern to automatically propagate data changes to clients without requiring the developer to write any synchronization code. On the client, Meteor depends on jQuery and can be used with any JavaScript UI widget library.

Meteor is developed by the Meteor Development Group. The startup was incubated by Y Combinator and received $11.2M in funding from Andreessen Horowitz in July 2012.

MeteorJS History (Reference)

Meteor was first introduced in December 2011 under the name Skybreak. In October 2014, Meteor Development Group acquired Y Combinator alum FathomDB, with the goal of expanding Meteor's database support.

  • Kadira is a performance management platform for Meteor.js which offers lots of resources to help a team to improve the performance of an app at any stage in its life cycle.
  • METEOR-VELOCITY This is a framework that provides a testing platform for meteor.
  • GAGARIN This is a mocha based testing framework that is designed to be used with Meteor. It is capable of spawning multiple instances of your meteor application and run the tests. These tests are done both on the client and server side simultaneously in real time. It is especially handy when you need more refined control over processes in meteor and allows you to test fancy things such as how your app behaves when the server restarts.
  • METEOR TOOLTIPS Meteor tooltips allows you to develop minimal, barebones and reactive tooltips for your Meteor applications. This allows you to forget about adding clunky Bootstrap packages that not only increase the size of your code but also fall short of expectations in some instances. Lookback: tooltips package provides tooltips for you “The Meteor Way”, allowing you to develop reactive, minimal and functional tooltips.
  • CLOUD9Cloud9 provides a platform for you to develop applications in the cloud. This provides several benefits to you as a developer, including convenient and cheap access to your files from various devices. Some of the features of cloud nine include code auto completion, file revision history, FTP mounts, keybindings, and browser testing among several other features.
  • MONGOL Mongol allows you to view and edit your client documents in the browser. This removes the need for you to enter the console in search of your documents. Moreover, Mongol is debugOnly package, meaning that it does not compile to your production build. It configures automatically thus facilitating a plug and play installation approach.
  • METEOR TOOLS FOR VISUAL STUDIO This integrates an awesome framework of meteor into the Visual Studio IDE. This therefore provides developers with a wide array of templates, debugging, Language Syntax Highlighting among several other amazing features. It also provides live page updates, latency compensation, hot code pushes, interoperability and smart packages to developers.
  • METEOR KITCHEN This is a code generator for Meteor.js. It allows you to build a complete meteor application by specifying the details in a simple JSON file. You simple need to specify the directory structure, layout, pages, menus, forms and data views.
  • METEOR TOYS Meteor toys provide you with a large number of development tools that will help you to develop robust and complex meteor applications. They simplify tasks such as templating, notifications, email and throttling among several other amazing features.
  • IRON This is a command line scaffolding tool for Meteor.js applications. It provides a way to automatically develop the project structure, the various files and boilerplate code.
