I love using meteor because of its command-line tools, no need to setup anything, just add packages and you’re good to go.
However my app is mostly static, to save memory and making it more scalable I am thinking about using Meteor methods to retrieve data instead of subscribing to them.
It is just as easy as subscribing to datas, same code with meteor.methods instead of meteor.publish, and meteor.call instead of meteor.subscribe.
My question is , is there ANY big down side for doing this? how does this compare to something like an express.js or rails back end?
