I used to be really into Meteor but have kind of cooled off over the past year. I’m picking up some more web dev projects and am looking back at Meteor. My main hesitation is that i’ve noticed that web apps built with Meteor always feel a little “flaky” to me.
The best way I can describe it is like a Phonegap mobile app vs a native mobile app…the first can be ever so slightly more sluggish than the native version, and things just dont feel as smooth.
These sites are great concepts but they have always had that flaky feeling to me when using it. Even some of my own sample projects, they just feel off for some reason.
Then I come across web apps built with pure Node and other parts of a MEAN stack and they feel flawless.
Whats confusing me is that I understand Meteor uses node and that Meteor is a client-server platform and the front end will heavily depend on what you choose to build it with.
So why do I have this stigma? Or has anyone else noticed flakiness with Meteor apps?
