Using classic nodeJS ORM in Meteor


#1

Is it possible to use for example Sequelize, Bookshelf or Waterline inside meteor ?

I want to use Meteor as a classic backend, so just using Restivus to build my Rest API and communicating with some external DBs.
It doesn’t need to be reactive or to be ‘‘live query’’.

Meteor allows you to load any npm modules, so I don’t see why not. You can even create a custom REST end-point by attaching a WebApp.conncetHandler. Or you can expose it in subscriptions via a manual publication: http://docs.meteor.com/#/full/meteor_publish.
