We’re considering moving our fairly busy (500,000+ sessions/month), global news site to a new CMS and I’m wondering if it’s plausible to look at Meteor for the job. There are more established, stable frameworks, but we don’t move often so it may make sense to bring us to the leading edge.
– Our site requirements are not too complex but we will probably require:
- something SQL for more complex queries (I believe MySQL support is coming soon to Meteor core)
- serving a good number of visitors and editors, plus traffic spikes (complex permissions, caching)
- serving users in developing countries with less modern tech
Is Meteor viable? We may be able to start, lead and part-fund the first 6 months of a new, open-source project – a telesc.pe for publishing, Wordpress for Meteor. Contributions would serve our live, busy media operation and be acknowledged as such.
All opinions, info on other similar projects, suggestions, technical queries, thoughts on scale, support, etc. very welcome.
