The React team just released an interesting new POC: https://reactjs.org/blog/2020/12/21/data-fetching-with-react-server-components.html
I recommend to watch the video, but what it does in short is offer a way to define components as ‘server’ (benefit: instant data access and no shipping of unneeded code to client) or ‘client’ (for when you need interactivity). It’s as simple as naming the component
Component.client.jsx. Sound familiar?
It is still in the experimental phase, but they are already working with Next.js and Parcel to incorporate this in their bundler. This sounds like a perfect fit for Meteor, and also a nice way to get Meteor back on people’s radar.
