Some more “newbie feedback” — thinking out loud here and realise there are probably things I’m missing which are obvious to Meteor Veterans
To summarise: I’d really love to use Meteor with Sevelte buuuuut…
I’m finding myself really wrestling with some sort of Blaze/Svelte combo just to get something as basic/fundamental as routes up and running, seems more difficult than it need be?
I probably don’t quite understand enough about the Meteor’s in’s and outs yet, so it may be easier than I think…
My biggest concern is there appears to be a lot of “secret sauce” going on that I’m going to have to wrestle with at some point to get it to work how I’d like, which sort of defeats the benefits I was hoping to gain by using Meteor
Right now, a couple of days in and after the tutorial I find myself on this cusp: of seeing “ok this is really really cool, love the data on the wire stuff, Svelte works great in principle”…
Buuuut, now I need to handle routes, and do some custom Auth for a non-trival app, and there seems to be no current way to do it but to get much deeper into Blaze and Meteor’s inner workings to hack it to work with Svelte front-end?!
My thinking then is: do I turn back to Sapper and building my own REST/GraphQL back-end?
Generally feeling excited about the potential of Meteor, would love to work with it, but a bit stuck on some basics which I feel need to be be covered before I can jump in confidently for any realistic app build.
Again just sharing raw feedback here, which may be valuable.
