Thanks for the answers
Other than that, try to both ask and answer as many questions on both here and on stack overflow to keep your mind engaged. That had worked great for me when I first met Meteor.
Don’t worry and just start writing code. You can learn everything you need in the process.
I think the moment you were able to do hello wold grants you to enter the world of meteor, my motto in life… “Jump in the Ocean and learn how to swim!”
Thanks guys! I’ll jump right in then :)! I’ll let you know how it is going!
I’d suggest starting with vanilla JS for now. The fewer things to learn at first the better, there’s more community support and ES2015 support with the ecmascript package (now included by default) has a lot of the conveniences from CoffeeScript.
Though I wouldn’t worry about it too much and just start coding.
If you like CoffeeScript syntax more, just use it. Learning the most frequently used Coffee features is 5 minutes anyways, with a day or two of getting used to writing it. But as you come from Python, it will be way more natural for you to use than ES6. So it doesn’t make any difference, as long as you learn ES6 way too.
Just remember that when you write an open source project and want some help with it, you will find more help with ES6 than with CoffeeScript.
You may want to check out Jade too, which is similar to CoffeeScript for HTML and which makes your templates twice shorter and easier to read.
Perfect! For now i’ll stick with JS and take a look at Jade! Thanks to everyone
