Meteor 1.3 : should I install a package from NPM or from Meteor?

Hi Guys,
I am new to meteor.

In meteor 1.3 any package in general eg. react is it better to install as meteor package or npm package? Is there any difference? What could be the consequences?

If an atmosphere “meteor” package is simply a wrapped NPM package I think you’re good to go with the pure NPM package.

For example react should be installed from npm.

Meteor-only packages should be installed from atmosphere.


Adding to this, as soon as they’re just a NPM package wrapped for Meteor, you will need to wait on the meteor package upgrades to get last versions of things. It’s better to skip the middleman.
