Before of all, please let me express my deep appreciation to anybody who involved in the development of Meteor, especially because it is Open Source project and it’s very kind and generous of you to develop a so useful free framework. Please don’t accept my words as a criticism, but only as my try to advance Meteor further.
I’m not the original poster, but from reading his message, I’m sure that he read that thread.
That thread looks quite dead, and the last activity was 5 days ago by Ben Green, who asked:
“Any news regarding this feature? Cheers.”.
If even the original developer of the PostgreSQL support is ignored when he asks about the status of his baby, then why bloodnok would be answered?!
So bloodnok started a new thread, and in several hours there are already two responses!
I feel that the community misses the point:
The number of developers who need SQL is huge, enormous.
And many of them are coming from the industry and from companies which are willing to pay a lot for development, the classical potential customers of Galaxy.
However, the community contains only the minority who don’t need SQL, or can live without it; Otherwise, they would not adopt Meteor.
And yet, even within the Meteor community, this is the #1 requested feature (935 votes in Trello).
Till MDG “adopted” Ben’s project, the progress was nice, and people expected a stable release soon. But now there are concerns that the adoption killed the project. The last fix (in the GitHub of MDG) happened about 2 weeks ago, and this fix was only a deletion of one line of dead code; it doesn’t look as the flagship project which aims to attract the zillions to adopt Meteor.
I haven’t jumped yet on the bandwagon of Meteor, and wait only for PostgreSQL support, but there are thousands in the same status. We hoped to see it in 1.2, and disappointed. We will be happy to get an answer.
Thank in advance for your answers, and thanks for developing Meteor!
