today I wanna announce my latest project to the forum. It’s called “Muzica” and is fully based on Meteor. It’s a single developer project, so I hope I can show beginners what they can do with Meteor and why Meteor is a great framework to build apps.
What is Muzica?
Muzica is a free cloud service where you can upload your whole music archive for free. All your songs will be available on all your devices, so you will never loose a song again. If you loose or change your device, you only need to install one of the Muzica app and within a few seconds you’ll have access to your songs again. It’s also possible to add up to 20 friends to share music with each other. Currently the cloud space is limited to 1 TB per user (with a max file size of 500 MB).
Third party sites are also able to integrate a Muzica button to their sites if they provide music downloads (an example is integreated on yaBeat when you convert a music video). So a user only needs to click on the button to add a song to his account.
Why did I choose Meteor?
I choose Meteor for three simply reason: Realtime, fast development and the possibility to target multiple platforms. In my case I needed an seperate app for Android, iOS, Mac and Windows. I’m a single developer, so I have to use an ecosystem where I can reuse most of my code to reduce maintenance work. Meteor gives me all of this features for free. All smartphone apps are built with React Native and react-native-meteor. The desktop apps are built with meteor-desktop. I don’t know any other framework which gives me all of this features.
What I’m missing
Well, I’m a little bit disappointed that MDG doesn’t maintain the desktop and React Native integration (both are community plugins). I guess building multi platform apps with a single code base is one of Meteors main features and makes it very interesting for companies and developers. You only need a small team to reach a big audience. On the other side, you also save costs because you only have to maintain a single code base.

Any feedback is appreciated ️
BTW: Special thanks to @diaconutheodor (redis-oplog) and @omega (meteor-desktop) for providing such great plugins.
