Sorry for the epic bump, but I am trying to do something similar and wanted some input.
I’ve read here and there that Meteor reactivity wouldn’t scale that well e.g. for chat/messaging features? That it would only support a couple hundred concurrent users (wouldn’t be a very good dating app, hah), versus tens of thousands (what I’m aiming for). Can anyone who has tried something like this, or is knowledgeable enough, comment on whether this or true? What kind of precautions should I take if I were to build this with Meteor to make sure it doesn’t blow up?
Or would this just be better suited for Apollo/GraphQL? @sashko
I know scale shouldn’t really be too concerning so early on, and I should probably just focus on developer productivity, but it’d really suck if my Meteor app could only scale to a hundred concurrent connections of people messaging each other, and I’d have to rewrite the entire thing in Apollo/GraphQL if I ever get to a thousand.
What would you build this with if you were to do it today?
