Yes, as far as tooling, I do get that Meteor is handling the infrastructure. However, I wasn’t sure what exactly was included in that infrastructure. Am I simply getting a pre-baked file structure, with a few dependencies sprinkled in? Or is meteor installing the entire framework (MEAN Stack, emverJS, react, etc) and leaving it up to me to decide what I need?
The problem I don’t want to have is for example I installed Meteor, but want to use a different version of Mongo, or Angular. Who manages that? Do I simply install/update it via npm, and change the dependencies in the packages.json file, or do I have to do something with meteor to get it working? This is where my limited knowledge of the framework comes into play
Ultimately, I think the github repo link provided is closer to solving my problem, but it doesn’t say if those are available packages I can install, or if they are already installed for me and I just need to pick and choose what to use. If there is something that I need which isn’t in the infrastructure, what do I do? I think that is where mup comes in. Is that correct?
I see this question evolving from my original ask, but perhaps it is all interconnected. Thanks again for helping me through this!
