aldeed:<...> frontend packages are amazing additions to Meteor, even so long after Blaze has been pulled out of the core, I wouldn’t put so much importance on
meteor-tabular. For something like that I’d pick any from this list that fits the purpose, and using either Meteor methods or pub/sub, make it update. WIth minor modifications one can implement
limit also. And you’re good to go.
I don’t understand what you mean by Accounts-Template. There’s no such library / package for Meteor. If you mean
meteor/useraccounts:core, not sure where you heard of it being abandoned. I’m pretty certain it isn’t.
For some good examples of Meteor success stories, have a look at this thread: State of Meteor?
