What is MeteorJS ?

Meteor is a full-stack JavaScript platform for developing modern web and mobile applications. Meteor includes a key set of technologies for building connected-client reactive applications.

Meteorjs is built with the help of Nodejs or we can say that meteorjs has NodeJS at its heart.

It allows easy prototyping and facilitates cross-platform codes for apps that work flawlessly across the web, Android and iOS. With Meteor, it’s comparatively simple to develop real-time web and mobile apps that are purely based on JavaScript.

Now let's talk about the advantage of this Framework-

Single Language- Meteor.js eliminates the need for the development of different codes for managing front-end, back-end, and databases. With just JavaScript working under the hood, developers don’t have to shuffle with the need for managing different resources for the back-end, front-end, or databases.

Easy to Learn- There are no prerequisites that you have to be mastered in the javascript or a pro in building a web application but knowledge on loops, variables, conditions, and JSON will help. It is a beginner-friendly framework and it is the simplest framework which a beginner can use.

Friendly Community- Meteor.js has a supportive community and numerous helpful resources to keep you updated with what’s new with Meteor. It has its own official YouTube channel with a wide number of meetups, tips, tutorials, and blogs, all making it easier to get a strong grip on the technology.

The best advantage of MeteorJS is - Full-stack reactivity allowing your UI to seamlessly reflect the true state of the world with the minimal development effort.

Scalable & Easy to Use: Galaxy platform of Meteor is a cloud service that has been designed for the deployment of Meteor Apps.

With the scaling platform it offers, tasks such as the deployment of apps and monitoring of apps have become simpler tasks – even for client-connected apps.
