Hello Meteor community,
I’m looking to re-platform our current product onto meteor. We’re a SaaS company in the fulfillment industry. Our current stack is PHP and mySQL, using Codeigniter as our framework. We have Python for a lot of the heavy-lifting and data processing, and a basic API done in Node. We also have an iPod and an iPad app built in Titanium and use Firebase for some real-time functionality.
I’m looking to consolidate some of those things by switching to Meteor, and make our app truly real-time. We would need to stick with our mySQL backend because Mongo just wouldn’t be a good fit for what we’re doing.
I’ve done a quick prototype using https://github.com/numtel/mysql-live-select to connect to our database and ensure that connecting to MySQL was possible.
Everything looks good so far, I just wanted to know if anyone is currently using Meteor on production with an existing MySQL database.
Also, I’m assuming i’ll have to code a custom login system to work with our existing MySQL users table and password hashes. I’ve done some research but I can’t find anywhere stating how to persist a user’s login state without using the Meteor Account package.
Look forward to being part of the Meteor community soon! Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
