Thus, the Meteor.js framework was born which meets much of the requirements of modern developers. Meero.js not only provides advanced features, but also has good documentation and learning resources.
1) Complete solution:
MEAN stack is just one instance of using a combination of technologies (MongoDB, Angular.js, Express.js and Node.js) and cannot be called a framework. When using the MEAN stack, developers need to synchronize between Node.js and MongoDB, as well as between Express.js and Angular.js.
On the other hand, Meteor offers a complete solution for developing and deploying web applications. Meteor comes with several built-in features such as reactive templates, automatic CSS and JS minification on the production server, and live code reloading. Their cloud platform, Galaxy, is quite powerful for deploying, scaling, and monitoring client applications. It also offers useful client-side technologies, including templates, wizards, and events.
2) Development ecosystem:
Meteor allows you to use the same code in the front-end and back-end, as well as for mobile and web applications. It prevents developers from being required to install and configure different libraries, module managers, APIs, drivers, and more.
4) Front solution:
Meteor offers Blaze.js, a front-end development framework. Although it is not an advanced framework, it does offer some nice features. But, Meteor also integrates with modern and popular front-end frameworks like Backbone.js for better results.
Meteor offers isomorphic APIs that communicate between the front-end and the back-end. This allows developers to handle client-server management and server session management with ease. Data communication between the client and the server happens automatically without you having to write any boilerplate code.
5) Database integration:
6) Live recharge:
Another prominent feature of Meteor.js is its integrated live browser reload. Whenever there are development changes to be made on the front-end, the live web page is automatically reloaded. Live reloading also makes it possible to update only the required DOM elements on the web page without having to reload an entire page despite any dependent changes in data on the back-end or front-end.
7) Custom Package Manager:
NPM modules (98,000+ modules) can be used with Meteor, but it also has its own custom Package Manager that presents the necessary NPM features and some additional functionality. The official Meteor repository of Meteor packages called atmosfera.js has over 2600 smart packages.
Meteor has a built-in package to handle preprocessing and custom user authentication for email, Facebook, Twitter, Google, and more. Furthermore, it also comes with the necessary packages for popular frameworks like Backbone.js, Bootstrap, and jQuery.
Mobile development with Meteorjs offers support for applications through the Cordova phonegap integration. You can easily develop and deploy Android and iOS apps.
In short, the Meteor ecosystem has an isomorphic API (application programming interface) that links all components within the Meteor ecosystem and integrates with third-party packages, tools, and managers. Additionally, you have the option to deploy Meteor applications using Meteor or any other service provider. You can also deploy your Meteor applications on your own server.
