Two approaches that I can imagine:
- Native Desktop implementations that use parts of Meteor’s stack, like DDP.
A quick StackOverflow and Github search shows there’s been interest and probably success in doing things this way for desktop… It’d be great to hear if anyone has had real success with this approach.
For 2. I’ve also heard of the implementation of DDP in Objective-C that people are using with ios apps and which I suppose could be used for a Mac app. There’s also a less-developed implementation of DDP out there for C#. You’d basically develop your desktop app as normal, but have it use the native implementations of DDP for the data.
