Dear Meteor enthusiasts,
I am writing a bachelor thesis, which broaches the issue of improving a browser game’s performance using Meteor Framework. For this I am collecting all kinds of performance best practices for web sites in general and I am trying to figure out which work good/best with Meteor.
In the book “even faster web sites” by Steve Souders I read about the “Early Buffer Flushing” method. At first I thought is it totally irrelevant for Meteor because PHP is used to achieve its benefits. However the book mentions, that “other frameworks” that don’t rely on PHP probably, also might have a way to realize this chunked encoding with a function somehow similar to “flush”.
A second thought was: Maybe that is somehow the same as what is being achieved using Fast Render, but I have my doubts, whether this is correct. As I understood it, Fast Render puts aside the waiting time for the database contents to faster render a first viewable content for the user. But using chunked encoding and flush it should be possible to load site contents while the html is being constructed.
Is this method not viable for Meteor because of the way the html is being stitched together? Or are there other reasons that disfavour this approach?
Any enlightenment would be appreciated : )
