I found out about a small Node.js server / client framework call Meteor at the weekend. After watching the video and reading a bit of the front page i was hooked and spent the rest of the day trailing round the shops with Emma reading the API docs.
First of, this looks awesome if it works half as well as displayed in the video then im sold. I can integrate bootstrap and backbone into my client side and write small webapp projects in no time. exactly what you need for minimum viable product type projects.
I have some reservations as the whole project runs on top of fibers which has been getting some stick. But maybe the sacrifice of Node.js’s great non-blocking architecture for ultimate simplicity in building is something i could get behind.
Anyway keep an eye out here as im sure ill be trying to get a small web-app up and running with the framework very soon.
