I’m excited to put this out for the community. It’s an app that lists meteor packages and allows you to add tags, make comments, and list tutorials and resources that package has. It currently pulls data with the Atmospherejs API.
My hope is that it will help new developers learn the packaging ecosystem a little better and drive more people to give Meteor a second look.
It took me a couple of months to build putting in a couple of hours a week. Since I used it as a learning opportunity I rolled my own comments and searching. So that’s one place I’m sure can be improved at some point.
Just a note about the use of the name Mesosphere… I am the developer of a package for meteor which was known as Mesosphere. About a month ago however I received a request for the package to be renamed due to a Trademark infringement. You can see the request here: https://github.com/copleykj/meteor-shower/issues/64
Just figured I would give you a heads up. In case you decide to move forward with the rename, I think Troposphere has a nice ring to it being that it can actually carry information (FM waves) in a phenomenon called Tropospheric Propogation . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropospheric_propagation
Very cool! I think you need to implement some callbacks for after you submit a comment. Right now you need to close the modal yourself, which isn’t expected behavior. Minor issue though, overall well done!
