I’m currently wondering how much one can do with Meteor right now.
Especially when it comes to “write once, run anywhere” idea.
So let’s take a fairly simple app like the
meteor create --example todos app.
(Any simple app will do)
Now I add these things to the mix:
meteor add-platform ios
meteor add-platform android
meteor add arboleya:electrify
With this is it currently possible to:
a) deploy this app so it’s available on the web (yes, definitely)
b) output a .ipa file (ios app) that I can install on an iphone
c) output a .apk file (android app) that I can install on an android smartphone
d) output an .exe file (using arboleya:electrify) that I can launch on a pc
and of course
e) link them all together so they share the same set of data/collections
If it’s possible, are there any requirements you would suggest?
For example always use a mobile framework like ionicframework?
Anything I’m missing?
I’m really interested in any kind of experience you can share on this.
#In other words
Basically what I’m asking is:
I want to start prototyping a simple app in the morning and have a web-version, an .ipa, an apk and an .exe ready in the evening. Can this be done?
