Pros: I love this framework because it gives me the opportunity to summarize my code and devise it in a better way, and best of all, it's free.

Overall: The truth can develop very fast since this framework was made to help you in the development.

Pros: Meteor.js is the fastest framework to make a web app with ios and android app too. We have 2 apps successfully running on production used by thousands of users developed ysing meteor. The best part is you only need 1 language, JavaScript for frontend, backend and database also.

Cons: Meteor is a little slow when talking about catching up with the latest updates. Also when we have npm why use another package management, atmosphere, which is not maintained actively.

Pros: Framework fullstack with many plugin for development quickly, very good management of resources and extremely efficient communication and use of mongodb. Use of publish and subscribe is very good to management roles, access and security.

Cons: Impossible of generate render from server side, this make extremely inefficient and hard the indexing with Google (If use blaze). Icons and controls are limited.

Pros: helps and provides a better way of integrating data base in MongoDB making the applications as effective as possible besides summarizing a lot of code, excellent Framework.

Cons: It only supports MongoDB as the main database and limits some linguistic integrations for the development of code.

Overall: I can say that the use of this framework has adapted me to the needs of the market in terms of the demand for the development of new APP.

Pros: JavaScript 100%, WebRealTime, Integration with React and Mongo DB

Cons: JavaScript is just starting to be good as Java or C.

Overall: Has been an entirely new experience, React is totally a new way on programming, I start to like it and all wrapped in Meteor is just fantastic, the ability of to apps web in real time and mobile right away out the box couldn't be better.

Recommendations to other buyers: You have to give it a try, 10min and see what is this about, it can has a lot of uses.

Pros: There are a lot of packages available to do anything you want basically.

Entire stack is based on JS so you only need single language knowledge.

Love the React officall support.

Cons: I would consider meteor for a prototype but for producttion site it doesn't make me feel comfrable since most of the community moved over to different frameworks.

Pros: With this framework you can create multiplatform applications with simple javascript with only having some knowledge in node.js you can develop all kinds of applications and quickly and easily.

Cons: The first time it can be a bit difficult if you are not familiar with the command lines, however once you have mastered it you can streamline work with that framework.

Comments: MeteorJS is definitely a new cool framework that I would describe as evolutionary. The way you write server-side and client-side code and it's served up together is really interesting. But there are definitely some weird confusing things about it. For example, all your CSS and js dependencies, the only way you can control the order they are loaded is by alphabetical file naming.... that is really weird. There doesn't seem to be a place that you can simply define the load order other than how the files are named. Really really weird.

The framework is pretty cool, but one of the main downsides to such a unique framework like this is if you build a project using MeteorJS and one day you decide to switch your project to use a different type of framework, you might as well re-write the entire thing since so much custom Meteor-specific code get's written in the meantime for your app.

Pros: Meteor abstracts away a lot about the stack such that you don't need to worry about building a lot from the ground up if you are able to build the particular type of application that meteor is good at building (single page "live" apps).

Cons: This is getting better with every release but, Meteor traditionally uses the global namespace too much making weird things happen everywhere if you aren't used to not having to import everything at the top of the page the way most modern JS dev works nowadays.

Pros: One the big selling points when it was released is that you have a collection of packages to get started working on your project right away.

Cons: Maybe one of the things I don't like about this framework is that is not very maintained and there is a lack of packages we can use.

Pros: Strong ecosystem, good documentation, easy to use

Cons: Edge cases can be difficult to solve, potential scaling problems with large apps

Overall: Really amazing framework that lets you get up a prototype very quickly. There's also a very active community forum and Galaxy hosting for apps made with Meteor.

I was deciding between the use of Meteor and Firebase for a client. I had no previously experience.

Pros: comparing Meteor to the other product it clear how much freedom and customization you can get. Which is very good

Cons: Meteor learning curve is steep, I think they need to make easy to deploy a default server with no user interaction so any new user can try out more easily

Pros: A very 'complete' nodejs framework, easy to learn and fast to build applications. Even build a mobile app with less hustle

Cons: Supports only MongoDB, does not support vuejs yet (officially), documentation and real life examples could be updated a bit.

Overall: Meteor helped us create a prototype of the product we wanted to create, at a short time scale. We just wish it would have supported mysql DB, and vuejs for the font.
