Key question for MDG. I’m keen to avoid the plethora of wannabe abandonware and concentrate my efforts in understanding languages/framework/concepts that will last. It’s going to be very difficult for Meteor to compete with Angular/React having the backing of heavyweight commercial vehicles. How is Meteor going to survive without commercialisation?
Meteor is commercializing, so I guess that would address your concern?

Meteor serves other needs than Angular and React and is complementary. I don’t think that they compete at all with Angular and React.
For the healthcare community, Meteor very much represents a 21st century version of M/MUMPS… a single-language, document-oriented app/database framework invented in 1968/69. M/MUMPS is still around in Epic and VistA systems, and has had a 45 year long run. And Mongo can almost seamlessly accept Mumps record. So some of us are looking at Meteor as representing the next 40 years of healthcare technology. Which is why we’re taking the time and effort to invest in regulatory compliance.
“Software is ever finished - only abandoned” - for most projects because they don’t deliver and for those that do deliver through becoming irrelevant…
I’d hazard that until a few superior-on-many-fronts alternatives surface, the risk to end users is being bought out and mothballed…(as SV tends to)
Find the right stack you can deliver with that fits your use case. Period.
Sorry, I meant commercially viable.
