What happened to rate limiting in Meteor 1.2?


#1

I see there’s this mdg package on atmosphere:
https://atmospherejs.com/meteor/ddp-rate-limiter

But it only has 45 downloads. Why is no one using it?

This blog post from June said it’d be rate limiting would be a part of Meteor core in 1.2: http://info.meteor.com/blog/rate-limiting-in-meteor-core

But hasn’t been much talk on it asides from that and that blog post is from before the Meteor 1.2 release. Seems like an easy thing to add to an app now, so why the apparent lack of popularity?

I just realised the official docs even have a section on it: http://docs.meteor.com/#/full/ddpratelimiter

It’s included by default for user accounts, so even if you don’t do anything it stops people from brute forcing your passwords.

Perhaps those who needed rate limiting already had an implementation for it?
