Why should you use Meteor js for your next mobile & web app development?

Consequently, businesses have realized the need to effectively use mobile channels for attracting customers. They have started new operations (or scaled existing ones) through web and mobile apps.

That being said, studies show that users prefer web & mobile apps more than websites. This makes for a strong reason to have mobile apps for reaching out to potential (and existing) customers.

Now the question is What technology stack should you use to build a new web & mobile Application?

Meteor is a game-changing framework for rapid software development. When Meteor js first launched back in 2012, it was a pioneer in many areas: whether it was the build tool, front-end library, state management, or data layer, the framework could hold its own against any alternative out there. By using JavaScript on the front and back-end, Meteor allows you to build faster.Meteor was supposed to revolutionize web development on node a few years back, making it easy to write compelling reactive applications.

8 reasons to build with Meteor js

  • 1. Your applications are real time by default.
    Meteor is the perfect solution for those looking to build real-time applications. It is real-time by default, known as "full stack reactivity". All of the application's layers from database to template update automatically. This means there is no need to refresh the page to see updates. And any changes to documents save instantly. This makes Meteor a perfect use-case for real time collaboration, too.
  • 2. It's fast to build with.
    When using Meteor, launching a MVP in 3-4 weeks can be a reality. With JavaScript on the front-end and back-end, plus smart packages, Meteor allows you to develop faster. This makes it a go-to for startups and others trying to get a product out the door quickly.
  • 3. Develop with just one language.
    Aside from rapid development, JavaScript on the server and client has other benefits—like less context switching. Moreover, JavaScript is one of the most popular programming languages in the world. It has many use-cases, and many developers are already familiar with it.
  • 4. Easy to learn.
    Anyone who gives Meteor a try knows how simple it is to get up and going. Unlike other popular full stack frameworks, you don't have to rely on multiple languages. Any semi-experienced JS developer could be handed a Meteor project with decent structure, and pick it up and get it running quickly. Even those who are not full-fledged developers, like designers, find it easy to implement. They love it for the same reasons as everyone: it's simple to learn and work with.
  • 5. Smart packages that save you time.
    Building out a login system for your application can be a pain. But not with Meteor. Meteor packages make it simple to add features such as:
    - User accounts
    - Javascript libraries like React
    - Extras like Bootstrap or Stylus
    - ...and more
  • 6. Turn your Meteor app into iOS and Android apps.
    Yes, you read that right. Meteor makes it simple to turn your web app into a smartphone app with Cordova. Cordova is a platform to build native smartphone applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. It has a set of APIs that allow you to access native device functions, like the camera, with JavaScript. And the best part is that Meteor comes out of the box with Cordova.
  • 7. Active and supportive community.
    Despite its young age, there is already a passionate community of web developers using Meteor—"Meteorites", as they call themselves.
  • 8. Meteor is the future.
    The web is becoming an increasingly real-time environment. With the growth of online applications like real-time collaboration tools, instant customer support, multiplayer web games, and more, the need for real-time friendly applications is increasing. And Meteor offers just that.
