“Build a fully agile platform with automatic services.”

OverallWith it I can finish my projects almost instantaneously and with the best possible code structures and identacion.
ProsWith this framework it simplifies and improves the use of the codes to be able to have an application structure with automatic answers, it is really useful and easy to learn.
ConsIt only works with data base like mongoDB and some route management is complicated but it has complements and methods that solves everything.

“Very useful framework.”

OverallThe truth can develop very fast since this framework was made to help you in the development.
ProsI 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.
ConsOnly works with a database and I would like you to have more options and labels for the best coding, you have to use base codes to make some things work.

“Powerful and effective framework to comprate with the best development.”

Overallwith it I have created lots of web app that covers most of the needs of my projects.
ProsWith this powerful framework I save a lot the development of codes making my web app as efficient and robust to the needs of adapting to today's technologies.
ConsIt is not very stable, it always has a change or update in which it forces you to learn new things, but I do not complain about this great tool.

“Meteor: Fastest web development”

ProsMeteor.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.
ConsMeteor 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.

“Meteor provides an encoding very indented and easy to read.”

OverallI 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.
Proshelps 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.
ConsIt only supports MongoDB as the main database and limits some linguistic integrations for the development of code.

“Excellent fullstack framework to generate quickly apps”

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

“Great for prototype”

ProsThere 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.
ConsI 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.

“Using Meteor with React has been...”

OverallHas 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.
ProsJavaScript 100%, WebRealTime, Integration with React and Mongo DB
ConsJavaScript is just starting to be good as Java or C.
Recommendations to other buyersYou have to give it a try, 10min and see what is this about, it can has a lot of uses.

“Easiest way to program and deploy an app”

OverallWe are deploying a Medical App using Meteor. This lets us secure more resources and focus on new ideas instead of having to learn a lot of technical stuff. Everything is seamless and the overall experience has been very good. We don't need more than 1 person in charge of Sysops.
ProsSimplicity. The app has a big Framework that can reused to develop your app. Blaze is a blast. Deployment is a breeze. Just do Meteor and thats it.
ConsDocumentation is very dated. It crashes constantly when launched in Windows 7/10. A lot of undocumented issues and redundancy with NPM.

“create your application with your knowledge in JS”

ProsWith 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.
ConsThe 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.

“Free, evolutionary, but confusing”

OverallMeteorJS 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.

“Some Hidden Traps but otherwise quick and easy to use”

ProsMeteor 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).
ConsThis 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.

OverallWith meteor I write less and develop more.
ProsA good web framework, quite powerful, I have been able to do some applications and it has saved me a lot of time.

“Meteor is a good framework to get you started working on a project very fast”

ProsOne 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.
ConsMaybe 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.

ProsStrong ecosystem, good documentation, easy to use
ConsEdge cases can be difficult to solve, potential scaling problems with large apps

“Great idea, but needs to catch up a bit ”

OverallMeteor 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.
ProsA very 'complete' nodejs framework, easy to learn and fast to build applications. Even build a mobile app with less hustle
ConsSupports only MongoDB, does not support vuejs yet (officially), documentation and real life examples could be updated a bit.

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

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