Today, Meteor.js development services include rapid prototyping and cross-platform development, database management and business logic.
We use the capabilities of the framework to develop both budget and resource-demanding web applications. We strive to deliver only the most thoughtful products so that the issue of maintenance and updates does not take much time.
Today there are a lot of web development tools. No one is physically able to learn this capacity in the deepest details. Therefore, each library, framework, or programming language is saturated not only with benefits or disadvantages, but also with erroneous judgments. For example, the development of Angular
has several advantages, but at the same time, it has disadvantages.
Sometimes they lead to an unreasonable decrease in the reputation of the product. To prevent this from happening, specialists try to dispel such myths in a particular technology. What misconceptions are common on the web regarding Meteor.js?
A lot of "magic"
This framework received its calling not so long ago, because many programmers do not know its exact potential. This led to the opinion that Meteor.js is oversaturated with functionality, which makes it more difficult to learn and use.
But any sufficiently advanced technology today is indistinguishable from magic. For example, artificial intelligence just started to fill our lives. And many people assess its capabilities as something unimaginable. But after 10 years it will become more commonplace.
At one time, many believed that Rails was also "magic." Today, a dynamic and thriving business structure has grown around it.
Meteor.js has nothing magical. Its functionality is sufficient for the development of modern applications and has nothing unnecessary. It is well suited for working with other frameworks like Laravel
. In a few years, this myth will disperse on its own. But business owners need to understand this now, so as not to miss the opportunity to get a quality project.
The second myth is that writing applications on Meteor.js requires a lot of time and resources. This opinion is distributed exclusively among novice developers. Any specialist even a middle level will say that this framework requires significantly less code compared to Backbone development
Less code - less time and potential errors. Accordingly, the development process is fast, but requires less resources.
Not enough structure
Yes, indeed, Meteor.js has no clear rules and structure. The problem is that some try to isolate it as a minus framework. In fact, the goal of the creators of this development environment was to provide flexibility in developing the application. Thus, the specialist decides how to write the code, which increases the uniqueness of each project.
Application scaling is a common practice for a successful business. But this process is usually very time consuming. Some developers claim that Meteor.js cannot provide high-level scaling.
This process depends on the application itself and how it manages the data. Accordingly, the problem of scaling lies not in the framework itself, but in how it was used to write code.
Meteor.js has some advantages regarding scaling due to its dependency on DDP. This protocol helps to easily separate and create a new system that will adhere to all active APIs. This means that, if necessary, scaling applications on Meteor.js is much easier than in many other frameworks.
One of the features of the framework is that it is based on the concepts of other environments and libraries in such a way as to simplify application development. Flexibility and smaller code allow you to create high-level applications in the shortest possible time. All of these are common advantages of Meteor.js. But how did it earn its reputation?
This framework is very popular among new market participants. The quality of the applications is almost as good as the more powerful development tools, but the application can be launched already 3-4 weeks after the start of work. This is especially important for early business development, as it allows you to spend more time on marketing than on technical issues.
This is one of the best frameworks that provide such an opportunity. All layers of the application are updated automatically, any changes are saved instantly. Thus, the developer can instantly see the flaws and make edits, which also speeds up the achievement of the final result.
Using the Cordova platform, Meteor.js is able to turn any web application into a mobile one. This eliminates the need to write additional code. At the same time, the transition from the web version to the smartphone does not cut the functionality of the application or its quality. In a world where mobile phones take up the lion’s share of user time, any business needs this opportunity.
Of course, every development tool is positioned as a technology of the future. However, Meteor.js proves this with actions. The first thing that is getting smaller is time. Therefore, automated development tools are gaining popularity. Real-time development plays a special role. Safety
As at the start of the business, and at its peak, the issue of security will always be one of the main ones. On this depends not only the functionality of web applications, but also reputation, customer activity and profits. How does Meteor.js ensure application security?
The publishing mechanism limits the data that can be obtained from the server. Thus, only relevant information gets to the page. Any data that does not relate to the subject of the site or does not correspond to the actions that the user can perform will be blocked.
Meteor.js does not use session cookies, which makes it impossible to attack a CSRF. Today, this attack is considered one of the most common. Thus, the user can always be sure of the implementation of actions on the site (from data entry to making payments).
On top of the framework, there is a layer of Mylar encryption. It stores exclusively encrypted data on the server and decrypts it only in the user's browser. Thus, even if the attacker gains access to the server, he will have to spend additional resources to decrypt the data.
