I’m about to start a react-meteor project and I’m wondering what the current state of things are?
Any suggestions about what pitfalls to avoid?
Must have packages?
Of course some of this depends on the type of app, but what about your basic must-haves for a react-meteor app? Especially packages where there may (appear) to be no clear “best practice” (based on DLs, etc.)
Simple Schema, Pub-Sub, Methods, Mini-mongo
Can I still use pub/sub, mini-mongo and simple schema without much hassle? Should I invest the time into learning redux?
Anything that still doesn’t work great?
For instance, I know awhile back it seemed like people were having trouble with using accounts-ui login and social oAuth,etc… is this still an issue?
I saw nova forms. It seems like there 20 form packages all of which look like they could be abandoned at any minute… as soon as a “winner” looks like it is emerging. I’m not sure I feel like placing a bets on a horse in that race. Am I better off just writing forms from scratch?
Avoid Atmosphere packages at all cost?
Is it a best practice to avoid atmosphere whenever possible? use NPM packages?
Is it possible to use Blaze with React?
I’m porting over an old blaze + 1.2 app and it’d be great to do this in chunks but I’m not sure if that is too much of a hassle?
The most up to date resources/tutorials?
Have you come across any great tutorials/resources lately? Particularly up to date with both meteor and react? Is the meteor guide up to date with react?
Does this work with 1.3 yet? Is there a react alternative?
I think I’d like a material design feel… any suggestions on libraries that go well with react?
