😎 Awesome Meteor List

Hello! In another post, I’ve shared a list of what changed in the Meteor ecosystem over the last few years and I thought it is worthy of a topic on its own (I was surprised that really major contributions went unnoticed).

Is there anything awesome that you think people might not know about and you would like the community to learn about? or even a cool open source project built with Meteor? useful link/tutorials pertaining to Meteor?

Then let us know by sharing it below.

Here is the initial list, I’ll update it when needed:

Bumping up and adding Mup to the list.

Although Mup has been here for while, it grew significantly over the last years.

Thanks @afrokick!

Also judging by the clicks, there is interest in the Meteor build client package. I suspect a lot of folks would like to generate a static bundle from Meteor and deploy it somewhere, perhaps it is worth considering it part of the community packages. Same is true for the SQL support.

Let me know if I missed something you’ve been using, also I think it is worth adding the open source projects (like VulcanJS and others).

Please also add Meteor files which is also actively maintained by @dr.dimitru

Also another question: will this list be curated on GitHub later on?

@jkuester thanks for the suggestion, I’ve added Meteor files, it is really awesome! @dr.dimitru consider applying for Github sponser, and adding your packages to the community packaegs.

Yes, that was the plan, but I’m thinking it is good to have it running in the forum for some time so we collect input and engage the community, and then I think it is good to add to the community sites and GitHub.

I’m seeing another advantage in having it in the forum, we’re getting indirect analytics on the interest based on the links count click, can we do something like that in Github?

For the others, if you have a package or a meteor related resource that you like to share, do let us know so we can add it.

Adding Meteor GitHub sponser to the list.

Is the SQL integration still current? I had a play recently, and couldn’t get it to work with the latest Meteor release, and gave up disappointed. Does anyone have anything current?
