Wow, I can’t believe blaze is getting an update with HMR. That’s crazy.

Great work. HMR coming to Blaze is music to my ears, even though the builds are quite snappy already. I hope Svelte is up next :+1:


Blaze + HMR = Productivity on Steroids :muscle: :rocket:

You would go live before the webpack folks figure out their configuration :joy:


Hoping Vue gets official support as well, as of now HMR is conflicting (at least in our case) with HMR of the vue package itself.


@epbujold you can actually re-publish this article on dev.to which opens this information to a big community of developers (and many newcomers). The platform actually allows to 1:1 publish articles, that were originally posted on another blog you own. It provides a field to enter the URL of the original post. Many companies use this to increase the reach of their medium articles on this platform.

You can already use HMR with svelte with the zodern:melte package. I actually created this before the react fast refresh integration since it was much simpler to get working for testing HMR.

The Blaze HMR integration is in beta. Instructions to try it are in the pull request. I’m not sure how well the implementation in the blaze-hot package will work with real apps, so the more people that try it and share feedback the better I can find a solution that will work reliably in the majority of apps.


It still requires running Meteor from a checkout, right? I’ll definitely give Blaze HMR beta a try :+1:

Those instructions were written before there were Meteor 2 betas. I’ve updated them now. For HMR it requires the app to use Meteor 2 and the hot-module-replacement package.


Thanks again @zodern for the HMR support. It was a breeze getting it up and running and it works beautifully, Meteor React development is feeling super fast now!. :partying_face:

The only thing we’re hoping for is the HMR support for packages. This will be useful for folks doing package-based-architecture which is one of Meteor’s core strengths I’d say.


Congrats, but there is no way this is 2.0 release it seems a bit disingenuous.

Ah OK versioning scheme seems to be changed looking into the roadmap…

There was a discussion around this topic and the team/community decided to be more aggressive with the version bumps and I think it was a wise decision, we have been stuck at 1.x for years and whe a major feature land, such as HMR, it does make sense to increment the version so it gets the right attention.
