7 years ago, I’ve build my first Meteor app. This application has grown, and evolved into a Saas that’s still running, and being worked on, today. I’ve been trough a few phases of which I believe many of us would recognize one or more:
- OMG! Awesome! A realtime app up-and-running in a few minutes!
- HELP! It doesn’t scale!
- Euh, why are you killing Blaze?
- Meteor is DEAD!!1!
- I need to migrate away, what should I use now?
- Perhaps it’s just stable, and past the hype stage
I’m still a bit concerned about the (lack of) activity in the git repo, and the (lack of) support from MDG. But on the other hand, I’m also still unable to find a platform that could replace what we have with Meteor.
In my current code base, I’ve reduced the number of dependencies on Meteor specific code. But I’m still:
a huge fan of:
- no-config build tool
- out-of-the-box user registration / auth system
- out-of-the-box mongo
- out-of-the-box pub/sub for fast prototyping
But that’s me. I’m here triggered by the many meteor-is-dead topics and the “improving the collaborative process” issue on github.
I don’t believe meteor is dead.
And I’m willing to contribute my 2 cents to strengthen the community.
Something I read quite a lot, is that all meteor books and tutorials are at least 2 years old. And thereby out of date. I believe I can contribute by fixing that.
But for that, I have a question for you.
What are the questions you have? For what scope or for which subject do you wish to see tutorials / documentation? What is it that https://docs.meteor.com/ is lacking?
