What is MeteorJS?

MeteorJS is a full stack framework and platform for developing applications in JavaScript. It provides developers with a complete package of tools and libraries to create web and mobile applications quickly and effortlessly.Footnote 1

MeteorJS is a popular choice among developers because it can be customized and utilized across various platforms. Popular front-end libraries and frameworks, such as React, Angular, and VueJS, can integrate into MeteorJS to allow for greater customization. It also enables the same code to be used across different platforms such as mobile devices and web browsers.

The platform offers powerful features such as automatic latency compensation, unified API calls, pre-made templates, modular codebase structure, and integrated unit testing tools. Additionally, it has a command-line tool that allows users to quickly create, test, and deploy prototypes. MeteorJS’s wide range of features enables developers to rapidly construct prototypes with just a few lines of code, saving them time and effort.Footnote 2
