What is the impact of meteor.com framework on the Node.js ecosystem?

For any front-end developer who never looked into how database and security works, when you see this, it might blow your mind and make you think you can really be productive now.

After getting into it, you will see that a lot of stuff isn’t figured out yet. It takes many years for Mongrel to be made for Ruby but still speed is still an issue today. The node.js ecosystem has handful of Node.js developers to manage the platform, but sometimes it may get an impact of other sources as well.

Impact on Node.js ecosystem by meteor.com framework

1.   Meteor has a different set of problems, which are the kinds of problems that prevent users from starting. Every User needs a secure authentication that they can trust and exposing the data layer to the front-end only works for some things. It is cool to build games or other vital applications for fun but real business apps need a few more features before it could be thought of a real platform.

3.    When a technology is used in a powerful way (here Meteor using Node) that actually validates the technology somewhat. Meteor should therefore help the Node community, with its ideas (shared via OS), and ambitions.

2.  Whenever you compare two things in open-source, you may observe that active projects can change quickly. So there is any kind of flaw today in one system, it can be corrected the next day and become an advantageous tomorrow. There are dependencies that could make one system more or less attractive than the other, which say more about the dependency than the system being evaluated.

4.  However, it won’t have much impact. Node.js wasn’t built to be a generic web framework. Node.js will still do what it does well, event asynchronous IO. Meteor appears to be a sensible JS web framework but so have a whole bunch of competitors like SocketStream and derby.

The app written on Meteor will usually feel faster than the app written directly on Node.js. And the meteor app will generally use less server resources, but might put more loads on the database. However, Node.js is more secure and can be trusted. Node.js won’t have much impact, since it wasn’t built to be a generic web framework.
