Meteor Svelte Starter

Yeah, but that’s not great - then many users would end up shipping products which contain blaze in their bundles, for one transient administration feature, if they don’t remove that package.

This is true. Better to just re-create them in svelte.

Honestly, I’ve never used the accounts-ui package, so I’m not even sure how important it is.

I still think it’d be better to avoid that. Honestly, it’s not that hard to set up all the same stuff in code and that has additional benefits (for example, once you have a text file, it’s easy to update things if you need to, whereas the UI based config is a constant pain - this is from experience), and personally, I’d prefer the tutorials lean that way in these cases. That’s just my opinion though.

If the tutorials do leave it there, hopefully they explain that it’s just for configuration, and it should be removed after?

I think it’s kind of like the autopublish package - it seemed like a good idea to make things super easy for early adopters, but it’s time has passed.

i think the point of the to-do step by step guide is to be for a beginner to see all the moving parts in action. Not so much as a demonstration of best practice (which i agree with you guys, using blaze is uneeded its only purpose is to quickly get the login form to be brought in to the step by step guide to let the demonstration proceed )

that was the audience i was shooting for anyway with them. Get beginners using svelte and vue with meteor and then grow a user base, who will make use of the packages people have made to support those frameworks.

I also fee like if your a beginner and you go the meteor site and click the tutorials link you have 3 options

blaze (which youve prob never heard of), anglarjs which seems kind of dated, or react. So react is the most natural choice. But if we had a vue and svelte step by step guide. they could play around with all of them. and make a choice. They would all be almost identical in content so no heavy lifting to switch around. and it gives an up to date appearance in my opinion.

Just created an account to stop by and say I would really love if @stolinski did a course at LevelUp on Meteor and Svelte. I’m still a novice at both (and JavaScript in general) but I haven’t come across two frameworks that are more fun to work with. Realtime apps with all of the scoped styles and JS of Svelte components sound great but, as I said, still a novice and could definitely use the guidance of a structured course on working with both frameworks together.

Also, awesome work putting this together!
