MeteorJS vs AngularJS ain’t a thing

  • Learn Angular, Dart, Polymer, Python, etc. – … Wanna work for a 2 to 4 year old startup?
  • Learn M-E-A-N – … Wanna work for a 5 to 10 year old startup?
  • Learn Angular Ruby on Rails – … Wanna create a new startup and impress everyone with how fast you add new features?
  • When building a web app you are going to deal with a lot of components (servers, databases, frameworks, pre-processors, packages, testing, …).
  • After all, making web apps is serious and complicated business… or did we just make it complicated so it seems serious??

To sum it up: Angular can be added to any stack. Meteor is a stack (albeit a Super-Stack). Like an Orange compared to an Orange Tree. Meteor actually modifies NodeJS and becomes your server. It…

Meteor comes with a bunch of built-in frameworks. One of the “built-ins” is a View framework called Blaze which is a better comparable to Angular. Meteor’s “built-ins” can be replaced. If you want to replace Blaze with Angular then you can! Simply run:

Boom you have Cheetos in your Jiffy.

The above command uses a community package. Meteor is extremely extensible by adding packages from Atmosphere, NPM & even Bower. Many agree Meteor is quickly becoming the standard for new startups.

Angular is sorta the King of modern front-end frameworks. It hits a sweet spot of being able to control almost the entire front-end while allowing any backend. Its thoughtfulness of what and how it controls has made it stand the test of time (in software years). The collaboration with is one recent example.

Real-time UI: Angular provides real-time front-end data binding between elements. At first glance it looks like Meteor does too but at deeper inspection you’ll realize Meteor is reactive on the back-end and front-end! Something Angular could never do since it is a front-end only framework.

*JS: Both have *JS at the end of their names since both are made with the Javascript language. Yes they share the same language but again Angular is in the browser, while Meteor is in…
