I went through the Meteor docs and it doesn’t look good…
Here are most of the packages referred in the docs, with their last commit date.
As you can see, in 2016 most packages stopped being developed.
These are not just some random packages. These are packages that MDG thought should be included in the docs, because they offered significant value for Meteor devs. I use many of them and it is very worrying.
Because the sad reality is, all these packages are legacy. All those people stopped developing those packages a long time ago for some reason. Probably all the people using those packages moved on as well.
How did this exodus happen really?
Seems I stayed way too long in the Meteor party.
Time to leave…
