Hi, what do you think about using Meteor for very small/light websites?
Let me tell you why I am asking you that question.
I have pretty good knowledges for Meteor as I am using it for several years now. Before using Meteor I was creating websites using Symfony in PHP. Now I am creating web apps with Meteor and React.
In a few weeks I am going to start web development as a freelancer. To begin, I will target easy developments like small business websites.
I can imagine several options. First, the most standard:
- HTML + CSS only
- HTML + CSS + React
- Static website generator like Wintersmith
Or some more powerfull stuff like:
- Symfony Framework (PHP)
If I use pure HTML/CSS/React, then I can use a simple hosting plan and FTP. If I use Meteor, I get a more scalable website for later, but requires more work on servers maintenance…
There are a lot of pro and cons for each solution, that’s why I would like to know what you think about it.
Last question: is it a good idea not to use a CMS for small websites?
