I think we should just learn JS technologies not only in the context of Meteor. So yes, Node, React, GraphQL, Redux - not as a particular tool but as an example and way of managing the state and data flow in the app. Also Blaze. It will not die, it is needed too. There will be also Angular2 with an official Meteor support. It could be a thing soon (There is Angular2 beta and Angular2 team is soo efficient).
My personal choice for a couple of future weeks/months is React + Webpack. I hope that I’ll be able to use it with Meteor without any major problems (I think of https://github.com/thereactivestack ;)).
Yes, me too… but looks like MDG reinvent the wheel, not use webpack…
I’m very comfortable with Meteor and Blaze. I’m very like React, but it looks like not enough for the future versions of Meteor. For me, year ago, when I found Meteor for myself, all what I was needed - docs.meteor.com. Right now - I have no idea. Now I can open docs.meteor.com and try to find something like reactjs or angular. The result will be zero. I think it’s not normal.
Meteor becomes too complicated, it is neither good nor bad
But in the near future we can’t say to newcomers “Build apps that are a delight to use, faster than you ever thought possible”
