We started developing with this HOMER dashboard theme a few months ago. We really like the minimal design. We had just taken the HTML/jQuery version and converted it for us with Meteor in-house. I shared my implementation with the devs and they make it a priority to release an official Meteor version.
Thought you might want to know about it. You and check it out here:
Another thing we did was we had an existing project written to work with another dashboard theme (PixelAdmin). But I thought Homer would make a better user experience, so I started a new, empty project with HOMER and basically ported over my views and other code, once piece at a time. It was a lot of work, but the code is much cleaner now because the process was a great opportunity to review, refactor and remove cruft.
