The move to supporting NPM is super great for flexibility with the ecosystem, but there’s some disconnect regarding new and exciting Meteor packages now, because people may publish to NPM and those things don’t get featured on Atmosphere.
Maybe Atmosphere can be revamped to showcase Meteor packages that can also be found on NPM.
For example, here’s Vue Curated which is nice because it shows awesome Vue packages and plugins from various places, and those things can live on GitHub or NPM.
Some people may go out of their way to publish to both NPM and Atmosphere, but that’s more work that others may not want to do.
Meteor needs a new Atmosphere that does something similar to Vue Curate where we can also explore Meteor-related projects on NPM!
