I just saw the Khorinis Announcememt which, in my opinion, is a great step into a direction I’ve been waiting for: frameworks on the Meteor platform.
People are often asking for a good structure for Meteor apps and MDG have announced to give advise on how to structure apps. But is a structure really enough? A structure doesn’t make much sense without knowing what libraries will be used, so you won’t just share a structure but the libraries as well.
So shouldn’t we start to think of “frameworks on the Meteor platform”? There are already some boilerplate structures/ frameworks, but I think we should create more of these. Why not have Meteor frameworks like we have node frameworks? Meteor itself is great but having more standard frameworks with events, routing, models and a module/dependency system might be a good step into the future.
Please note that this just came to my mind and I’m still thinking how this makes sense, but I’d like to know your feelings about this
And as MDG are looking for a good structure (I’d say framework), what do you think about an official “Meteor framework challenge”?
